Pope Benedict Takes Possession of His Cathedral Church


Pope Benedict waving to the crowds of Rome as he leaves the Lateran Basilica after taking possession of his cathedral church on May 7, 2005. The open-air Mercedes limo then processed to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore where His Holiness venerated the holy icon of the Virgin. The vaticanisti takes note of the beautiful gold and emerald pectoral cross and the lacey rochet Benedict wears so well.

What kind of a Mercedes does he drive?

The vehicle used for the procession was a modified Mercedes S-class sedan. The Vatican has a fleet of papal vehicles for different occassions. We approve the selection of the German-crafted convertible-sedan for this momentous event. We impart our blessing.

I heard that a vaticanista is going to report hot news directly from Rome... is this true? When should we expect to get the first news dispatch? What photos will we see? What will we learn about the latest papal fashion? Will the vaticanista be conceded an interview with the Pope? Will he send him our greetings? Will he get to drive his Mercedes? All this is so exciting!

The rochet is not lacy. It is a plain, simple poly/cotton blend.

BXVI has worn the scarlet mozzetta more in three weeks than John Paul II wore it in 26 years.

This pope is a bit more of a fashion plate.

This pope is very cute and dapper and he has a woman (Ingrid Stampa)to help him with his wardrobe. JP II was all super alpha male. He looked great in his robes, but he looked even better in a pair of hiking shorts. Sweet little Benedict is not a bad replacement. He has masses of silky white hair, big blue eyes and a charming smile to set off his vestments. He looks adorable. Let us wait and see if he lives up to JP II in other ways.

As I know Popes always liked Mercedes. This car is really great German engineers masterpiece.
Mercedes S-class is a bestseller for last 20 years in it's class. Even Limousine hire companies first of all will offer you this wonderful vehicle.
