About Last Night . . .


Christmas Eve Robe
Originally uploaded by Joseph Ratzinger.
The Christmas Eve service went well last night.

I was a little hesitant to wear this yellow-gold robe, but it's what they all wanted me to wear. The robe doesn't fit right, and made me look a bit bloated.

I felt like a twinkie.

Sometimes you have to bow to tradition and wear the customary christmas eve twinkie robe. You look regal, your highest holiness.

Your Holiness,

You do look just a tad twinkish in that gold robe. I would have went with the red one. What shoes did you wear? Shoes make or break an outfit.

You are right, Your Holiness; it's not a good color for your complexion. Also, looks like you were having a bit of a bad hair night, too. Drink some communion wine & forget it. You can alway use the "It was my first Midnight Mass as Pope" line

I would have worn the white chasuble with the burgundy brocade, but that's just me. The burgundy brocade looks excellent with red prada.

Gee, Your Holiness..you look miserable in that picture. Maybe because it's past your bedtime? Yes, gold is not your color. Stick with white and red. Those colors really look good on you.

Dear Mr. Pope,
A twinkie, huh? So what's YOUR shelf life? Just curious.

Your Holiness, there's a time and a place for mirror-gazing (not during Christmas mass!).

Nah, everyone deserves some bling during the holidays. If you were a little yellower you might've been a twinkie, but hey! You're entitled to some flash! After all, you're the Pope! You live in a house with diamond-encrusted mirrors!

I actually think you look pretty good in that robe. I'm glad you didn't wear the Santa hat, though. It is not very becoming on you.

Your right about the gold, doesn't look good. The dark reds' look best on you from what I've seen.

Your Holiness, I don't think it matters what color you wear, as long as you keep the Monty Python re-enactments out of your services. That big book's gotta leave a mark...

Who cares what you look like, why don't you go for comfort and toss in all your robes and put on some sweats, get some for your rodeo looking clowns as well. Why do people call you "your holiness"?
What is it exactly about you that is so Holy?
The only one that I would reference "YOUR HOLINESS" to is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Smack yourself in the head with that big ole book and sit down.

How many more idiots out there are completely unaware of the fact that priests and bishops in the Catholic Church wear special colors during mass depending on the time of year?

Your Holiness: I don't know, I didn't think it was that bad. It is not a good color for you however. Makes you look washed out and you were tired enough as it was.

I liked your sermon. I didn't know shepherds were treated like second-class citizens at that time and couldn't testify in court! After 26 years of your predecessor's poetic sermons, it was interesting to hear your take on things. Keep on rocking in the free world!
