Habemus Papams


[BBC News] Newly elected Pope Francis has met his predecessor for lunch, the first time such a meeting has been possible for more than 600 years.

Pope Francis was flown by helicopter to Castel Gandolfo for the private lunch with Pope Emeritus Benedict.

Benedict has lived at the lakeside castle south of Rome since last month, when he became the first pope in six centuries to resign, citing ill health.
What is with everyone wearing white before Memorial Day?

  3. It brought me to tears too... for other reasons, I'm sure. When you believe in papal impeccability, I suppose the more popes the better, eh?

  7. Actually, I think the correct Latin plural would be "habemus papa" -- counter-intuitive to English speakers. And Papams is still funnier.

  11. There should NEVER be a plural of pope. There is one and only one pope. The fact that we have two living popes photographed together is really an outrage. One is pope, the other is the Bishop Emeritus of Rome. As much as I admire Pope Benedict XVI, he should have relinquished the title. I cannot believe we are talking about two living popes. At least he's going to live in Rome and not in Avignon.
