Actually the Nazi Pope was the last pope, Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger,) who was a member of Hitler Youth during his formative years. He is now living in splendored retirement in the Vatican.

Just remembered another funny Pope-related tidbit.

As he was being covered (endlessly) on the news, one of the local channels was narrating his arrival at St. Patrick's, saying something like, "You have to wonder what he's thinking, coming to such a grandiose place." And I was thinking, Really? You think he's going to be over-awed? You're so ignorant that you don't realize that he's got St. Peter's at home, far more "grandiose"?
