Pope Francis, the Argentinian Bishop dressed in white is still hanging out at the
Casa Santa Marta Hotel in beautiful downtown Vatican City. Francis is still being careful in what he
eats in the Hotel cafeteria and grateful that no hidden passage ways are
evident in the modern architecture of his temporary housing.
He has signed off on an 82 page encyclical of the late retired pope Benedict Xvi.
Benedict is of course on a hill in
the Bates Family Home a converted convent retirement villa.
One has to wonder how many more encyclicals written by the ream Benedict in retirement will continue to crank out in his old age over the next several decades?
