Every time I see this Vatican couple, I can't help but believe this is the classic example of a closeted, deeply repressed gay man and his secret paramour - in a relationship that is undoubtedly chaste. And I'm not trying to be funny, quite the contrary, it is all very sad in so many ways. The quote below is very interesting in light of recent developments.

The Web portal of Radio Vatican reports in a text of July 21, 2007, that Pope Benedict XVI, in Lorenzago di Cadore where he is staying until July 27, spent one hour in prayer in front of an image of Our Lady of Medjugorje. 

Radio Vatican is saying that it was a very poignant moment. 

"The Pope went to the small chapel in the forest and prayed in front of the image of Our Lady of Medjugorje. An interesting story is connected with this image: it was brought in the 80’s and was stolen. After some time, the thief brought it back to the small chapel. The Pope prayed the Rosary and spent there about one hour”, says the journalist of Radio Vatican.

Clever, Jayden. The Gospa clearly can be seen through various prisms, can't she?
