Perhaps Pope can improve atmosphere

It was a bit of news that grabbed my attention last week.


I do not mean in a critical way, but I found it to be more interesting because of its somewhat unusual nature.

However in this decidedly different time, I must say I have seen evangelists with lavender suits and socks to match. Read on.

However, anything colorful enough to attract attention to the sermon has to be of value.

According to news reports and Style Magazine, Pope Benedict XVI is proving to be a spiffy dresser. He is wearing his familiar cherry red loafers and sunglasses by Gucci.

The Pope was asked to commission his own special brand of eau de cologne, combining scents of lime trees, verbena and grass. It was created by an Italian “Nose,” which perfume makers are called.

The perfumes have good names of their own: Water of faith, water of hope and scent of the grass to accommodate the Pope’s love of being out in the forest.

Even with his special made fragrances, the Pope has his work cut out for him in trying improve the smell of the air breathed.

Many persons are almost impossible to please. Throw open as many windows of fresh air as you can, and somebody will say, “The whole world stinks!”
