Yesterday.... I'm not sure if this is the typical Christmastime entertainment at the Vatican. The Pope looks a tad confused intitially when the men formally present themselves and remove their jackets, but the nuns are totally with the program:

I saw this on TV last night and thought it was a joke!

Two things:

1) :eek:
2) The Pope is looking awfully frail.

How old is the Pope? He does look really frail, I don't remember him looking nearly so old when he was chosen as Pope. How long has that been now? Time flies!

Yeah, he looks really frail, but that glimmer in his eyes creeped me out. He may have just been impressed by the acrobats :shuffle:
