Yeah....he wasn't on "holiday". He' visited his dying brother. Obviously you've never been in that situation. Or been around the sick. Frail, 90+ year old people don't go on vacation. They move when they absolutely have to. Like when their loved ones are dying.

And from what I've gathered, Our Communist "Pope" didn't know about it first.

It was a holiday, in that it was a special trip. The cause was certainly a somber one, but it's still a holiday.

" Or been around the sick. Frail, 90+ year old people don't go on vacation."

Wrong. That's exactly what they do when they realize they don't have much time left and they still can manage Your ignorance and bitterness are showing, Jimbo. You should try volunteering for a change and …More

Never did she decide to go to Disneyland. She couldn't even go see her sister before she died. It is painful and exhausting to do so. It exhausted B16 to travel, even though he could manage because he has excellent resources. But it was not a holiday. Or vacation. A mission ? Perhaps.

You're out of your wheelhouse. Natch.

It doesn't matter if we're talking Canon Law, or Papal vestments or even the last wishes of "sick, frail people". The same constant remains: you are an ignorant loud-mouth, Jmy1975

...and like all ignorant loud-mouths, you're readily contradicted by factual information.

There's also a charity aimed at helping "sick frail people" go on exactly the kind of vacations you just claimed they don't go on.

Your error in reasoning is based on assuming your grandmother is reflective of all people who don't have long to live.
comfort ye
"On holiday" is a European phrase and concept we don't really grasp in the States.

@comfort ye maybe you can't grasp it, but I can.
