Why? Nothing wrong with the Pope showing a sense of humor, is there?

Can someone tell when did this take place and what were the circumstances?

I think Bob Geldof and Bono met the Pope to discuss dropping the debt campaign in 2000 (or maybe 2001).

Correct, Geldof and Bono went to meet the Pope as part of the Drop the Debt campaign.

But Sue, the original post never said there was anything wrong with the Pope trying on the sunglasses... I'm certain that they meant it affectionately.

I think Sue was asking why the Vatican wouldn't allow the pictures to be released.

Oh dear! Sorry! I haven't slept in days so my brain said goodnight earlier this week and has not been seen since.
