Humour From The Pope

JMJ+D

Here's a wonderful story about the Holy Father when he was Cardinal relayed by his former housekeeper, Sr. Agapita. A hat tip to Father Stephanos, OSB.

Sister Agapita also talked about her memories of playing the German board
game "Mensch aergere Dich nicht" with the Pope. "This was one of his favourite
games," she said, "and it means, translated, "don't get annoyed" because you can
be in the process of winning and at the last moment be booted out by your
opponent. When playing this game, I found out that Cardinal Ratzinger had a
wonderful sense of humour and we laughed a lot together."

I encourage you to read the entire story from Independent Catholic.

Update: I heard SFO MOM played this game before!.
