Pope on holiday

Pope Benedict XVI on holiday at Mirabello castle in Lorenzago di Cadore, northern Italy. I read in the Catholic Herald that one of the policemen guarding him struck by lightening, he was completely uninjured.

The holy Father also met a 96 year old parish priest, the oldest active priest in Italy.

Apparently, he also met Pope John Paul I's brother. I wonder if he's the old gentleman in the photo?

The old gentleman is the 96 year old parish priest. He desrcibed the Pope as being like an Angel.
