Bargain Bin Pope


 I was in a Rome in October 2014 and it was very difficult to find any gifts/souvenirs related to Pope Benedict XVI. I think this mostly had to do with the recent Canonizations of Pope Saint John XXIII & Pope Saint John Paul II. It also happened to be the week of the Beatification of Blessed Pope Paul VI. The stores were already packed with the current Pontiff, Pope Francis. Anyhow, I found a small cardboard box on the floor near a cashier that read "50% off". I grabbed one of the prayer cards ready to pay when the cashier said to me "You know that's not Francis right?"  

Uh...yeah I know....thanks for reminding me.
