The Pope - My Fake Diary

Tuesday, 8 May 2012

Yesterday I received in audience members of the Pontifical Swiss Guard with their families.
This came after a ceremony on Sunday when 26 new recruits swore loyalty to me and my successors.
The swearing in ceremony takes place each year on May 6, the anniversary of Sack of Rome in 1527, when 147 Swiss Guards gave their lives to defend Pope Clement VII.
I welcomed the new recruits, and reminded them of the special qualities that characterise members of the Corps: a strong Catholic faith; loyalty and love for the Church of Jesus Christ; diligence and perseverance in their regular duties; courage and humility, selflessness and a willingness to help others!

Now, where is my jigsaw puzzle?
