CAPTION THIS: When il Papa Met il Bambino

"Shhh... Don't cry, little one. I didn't outlaw the Traditional Latin Mass. Didn't your mother ever tell you Rorate Cæli is bad for you?" (Full story here. Picture c/o: L'Osservatore Romano/Reuters)

Thank you to everyone who participated in our last caption contest! We finally finished eating the chocolate Pope evaluating the entries, and the winner is...

Sue, who reminds us of the true meaning of Easter:
"Ehhhh, it's OK. But it's no Cadbury Creme Egg."
 An honourable mention is also awarded to Rachel Chamberlain, who kept her focus on Lent:
"Man, you get the feeling that they really want me to have a daily reminder that to dust I shall return."
Brava, ladies! Gentlemen, don't be such crybabies over your loss. You fought the good fight, and you can take up arms again by leaving your captions in the comments below!


  1. "Listen, kid, if you don't calm-a down, you'll have to deal-a with the Swiss Guard!"

    In my mind, Pope Francis sounds like Fr. Guido Sarducci.

  2. But I don't WANT to go to the seminary.

  3. Pope Francis: "Now sing after me, 'And He will raise you up on Eagles' Wings...'"

    Little Pope: "NOOOOO! Introibo ad altare Dei!"

    Pope Francis: "Oh, you young people and your fashions."

  4. "It's okay, little one, it's okay - sure, only one of us can be me, but I can make you a Cardinal in pectore, no problem."

    1. "Just don't expect to be made a Monsignor, alright?"

  5. "If this screaming child truly seeks after Christ, then who am I to judge his ill manners?"

  6. Haley Joel Osment converts to Catholicism

  7. Francis: Really? Wearing MY outfit to the party?

    Kid: You're not the ONLY one who thinks that wearing white to honor Pius V who chose not to shed the white cassock of his Dominican brothers upon being elected to the papacy is FABULOUS!
