From an article in the NY Times about yesterday’s press conference with Pope Benedict XVI.
Ms. Macher said he was modest, not at all showy for a man of his position, with a dry sense of humor.
"Someone lost his dog and put up a sign: Has anyone seen this German Shepherd?" she recalled. "He came in and said, ‘No, no, it’s not me. I’m here.’ It was really funny – it surprised us. I think he is going to surprise us."
Also here is the text of the Pope’s homily today at his inauguration Mass.
