So where does a pope retire to? Why, to his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, of course. It's nothing special from the front,
but it does had a nice location, two observatories,
and an amazing garden with a view toward Rome eight miles away.
Those Italians and their geometric gardens. Perhaps they like well-ordered gardens because everything else about Italian life is so messy.
I have to say the furniture does nothing for me. But those marble floors!
And should his ex-holiness get tired of the rather drab decor in his palace, he can step next door, where the attached church has a dome by Bernini. I am reminded of Leo X, who is said to have remarked, "Let us enjoy the papacy, since God has seen fit to give it to us."
How many people are starving and homeless in the world? How many works of genius owned by the Vatican, including its various properties? Nuff said...
La maison de retraite de Benoît , Jésus doit se retourner sur sa croix. Une petite pensée à ces retraités qui ont travaillé dur et reçoivent 500 ou 700 € par mois. Voilà comment vit l'ancien mage de la plus grande secte du monde
Ne sont-ils pas supposé faire des veoux de pauvreté entre autre chose???? Bravo pour la pauvreté pendant que d'autres ont peine à se nourrir.Ce n'est pas facile servir Jésus.....
