Prego e Leggo

The blog recently had its first visitor from a Vatican City IP address. Someone suggested it might have been the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, enjoying his free time.

I believe this was an AP photo

While that is highly doubtful, it did remind me of this recent story about the Pontiff Emeritus. An old friend of his paid him a visit not long ago, and reported subsequently that Benedict had said to him: “I live like a monk. I pray and I read*. I’m fine.” Maybe he is catching up on the blogs…?

*In Italian, “I pray and I read” rhymes nicely – “prego e leggo”.
