Papa meets a nurse

Image hosted by

Whispers in the Loggia posts this picture along with the caption: "I'm told the Pope was initially shocked when, on his recent trip to the Bambino Gesu Children's Hospital in Rome, a nurse sprung forward to embrace him. A member of the press pack who was there tells me that Georg the Bodyguard "got lost in the scrum," a serendipitous occurrence which allowed this priceless moment to take place."

No "Whoaaaa, nurse!" jokes! ;)

And "Georg the Bodyguard" is, I believe, Fr. Georg Gaenswein, the Pope's private secretary.

To quote this Gaurdian article on Fr. Gaenswein: Thou shalt not drool!
