Of course it's white; You were expecting neon?

Say a prayer for Pope Benedict.

Yes, he returned to his holiday in Valle d'Aosta, but consider this:

What does Pope Benedict like to do on his holidays?

Write and play the piano.

Both of these are now pretty well shot to you-know-where for the next 4 weeks.

Add to that the general discomfort that comes with a cast (difficulty buttoning buttons, eating, and all sorts of other functions - if you've ever had a cast on you know what I mean), then add to that the difficulty he's going to have in saying Mass, and you see that he may be feeling a bit down lately.

So say a prayer for Pope Benedict.

I hope that this injury will not, long term, affect his ability to play the piano.
