Pope Report

You may recall that on logical yesterday, we speculated about if and how Pope Benedict XVI keeps his vestments so clean and white.  What an opportunity for a washday detergent endorsement!  I received and am pleased to present this eyewitness account from RIKLblog correspondent Gloria, who was fortunate enough to see Il Papa in person. 

I was able to appear with other bystanders precisely at the SW corner of 72nd Street & Park Avenue. Therefore, when his motorcade drove by and slowed to make the right turn we were able to see him wave from the right side of the limo. I was in the perfect place, got a few photos, hope they come out.  He just waved, and waved, his little papal wave. It was really quite lovely, the young women in front of me were singing out: Benedetto, Benedetto <<clap, clap>> etc.

As far as the vestments go, yup... they were white, as best as you can tell through UV tinted windows...

Thank you, Gloria!
