Pope breaks limp wrist & Vatican praises Oscar Wilde

Those interested in Roman Kathurlick affairs will this last week have noted how the pontiff and german shepherd, Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI snubbed Berlusconi during the G8 bash in Italy but managed to give Obama a cuddle despite the former being anti-abortion, anti-contraception, anti-cell-stem research (& simply into good looking young girls) & the latter being a protestant.
Then the Pope went off on holidays to get out of Rome which is a smelly and oppressive place during the summer months & broke his wrist, an incident reported throughout the global catholic interest press. But at the same time the official Vatican newspaper decided to "rehabilitate" Oscar Wilde.
For years it was thought Alice Guszalewicz posing as Salome, Wilde's religious play was in fact Oscar being a girlie
Let us not forget that in the face of death Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde converted to Roman Catholicism - with possibly rather more sincerity than Anthony Charles Lynton "Tony" Blair
Robert Ross, in his letter to More Adey (dated 14 December 1900), stated "He was conscious that people were in the room, and raised his hand when I asked him whether he understood. He pressed our hands. I then sent in search of a priest, and after great difficulty found Father Cuthbert Dunne ... who came with me at once and administered Baptism and Extreme Unction. - Oscar could not take the Eucharist". : source the book written by Oscar's grandson Holland and Rupert Hart-Davis (2000): The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde. pp. 1219-1220, New York: Henry Holt and Co. ISBN 0805059156
it's best to be on the safe side when you die beyond your means - perhaps buggers can be choosers after all ;-)
the Holy Father's wrist is in plaster so we may not cast aspersions on its limpness
reaction to the Vatican rehabilitation of man supposedly absolved of supposed sin almost 109 years ago :-
this week's Vatican news is getting really interesting perhaps thinking it will attract a new readership looking for the rehabilitation of Wilde. They're tackling the evils of unfettered capitalism, the political rights to protest of Iranians and the corruption and moral decadence of Berlusconi's Italy.

great stuff I'm sure you'll agree & expect the Pope to go on a mission to Wall Street as soon as he can to preach the gospel just like he made the effort to go to Africa and remind them condoms were bad.
Of course Dorian Grey never needed condoms.
