All I see is a photo of a dorm fridge, a photo of the Pope, an office chair and a doctor's scale. Anybody see any vaccinations happenin'?

Ultra... it’s a metaphor. The chair is empty... sedevacante. *touches finger to his nose*

I'd say you're giving the Vatican Media far too much credit based on your scholarly nature, Hugh. Media photographers are about as subtle as a baseball bat.

To date, there hasn't been ANY published photos of Benedict or Francis "getting the jab". Benedict I can understand. First, he isn't pope anymore. Second, he's really really old and isn't exactly the poster-boy for spry healthy old age. …More

Second, he's really really old and isn't exactly the poster-boy for spry healthy old age. Some of the mummies dug up in Egypt look better than Benedict.

But Photo-Friendly Francis, the Media's Global Vaccination Pope? For a guy who's been ranting how -everyone- MUST get vaccinated "for the common good", it's mighty peculiar how he's shied away from such a fantastic media opportunity to lead by example..

Since Pope Francis hasn't (to my knowledge) claimed he -has- been vaccinated, I can't in good conscience accuse the man of being a liar.

However it's entirely possible the Vatican Press Office is lying on the Pope's behalf. Our Supreme Pontiff, ever so pre-occupied with our "common home", the "common good" and inclusivism for "the common man", simply hasn't noticed. ;-)
