In this photo made available by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Benedict XVI meets with Chilean Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa, second left, and First Deputy President of the Latin American Episcopal Conference Mons. Carlos Aguiar Retes of Mexico, Second Deputy President Mons. Geraldo Lyrio Rocha from Brazil, and General Secretary Mons. Andres Stanovnik of Argentina, (from left to right) in the Paul VI study at the Vatican, Thursday, April 28, 2005. Vaticanisti takes note that the papal apartments are still being refurbished, so His Holiness takes care of business in an alternative reception room. We hope the newly refurbished papal apartments will include a healthy dose of Renaissance artwork instead of the oftentimes modernist drab that once occupied those historic walls.
