Two Popes. One Church. One (Beautiful) Game

I’m not a big soccer (or as the rest of the world calls it, football) fan, but I have been aware of the excitement surrounding the World Cup. I just checked and it appears Germany won in the final match against Argentina. Perhaps my readers know that Pope Francis, the current Holy Father is a big soccer fan and from Argentina. Recall, too, that the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is from Germany. I wonder if the two Popes got together at one of their residences this evening to watch the World Cup final match, cheer on their national teams and place a friendly wager. Wouldn’t that be fun?

Someone else must have had similar thoughts because I found this link to a cartoon posted on Twitter, courtesy of Roco Palmo over at Whispers in the Loggia, so go check out the cute picture at
