Erica has been listening to AMT291 in which we fielded a question about what the Pope does on his holidays. She says:

I once met a priest who had been part of the Swiss Guard, which is basically the Pope’s secret service. He told me that Pope John Paul liked to go downhill skiing well into his 70s. *

I honestly can’t remember if I imagined a white ski outfit with a cross on the front or if he said that is what he really wore. I am fairly certain it’s the former. **

Well, readers, have any of you actually spotted a Pope on his hols? Whizzing down a black run, robes flapping behind him; or sunning himself on a beach in a pair of papal Speedos?

* It’s true!
** Also true. But maybe he’s wearing his full pope-dress under the appropriate ski-wear. Dare to dream, Erica.
