Funny, thanks for the insight. Those lovely Italians! I talked to a friend of mine, and she said they were, well, "expectiing an Italian - I mean, look at that German, typical German hard face"

I think his words (see above) were quite interesting, an opened speech, indeed like one of a Pope, not what I would have expected of Ratzinger - see, he also speaks of poverty. We will see if he stays a bureaucrat.

It's called "false modesty." It's a Vatican tradition.
