der Papst

Pope Benedict XVI, who is German, came home for a visit to Freiburg.  The city center was packed, though no one was allowed into or near the Munsterplatz.  The Vatican flag was donned wherever a flag could be raised.  Street vendors sold "Pope Totes" and Christian groups spread the good word through their pamphlets and prayers.  Most who came to see der Papst in his "Pope Mobile"were enthralled by merely being a face in the crowd in his almighty presence.

Others portrayed their disgust with the Catholic church through some graffiti and light protesting.
