The Holy Father's New Ride

Pope Benedict XVI received a brand new XC90 from Volvo, custom-tailored for his papal use. The Holy Father was presented with the keys for his brand-new SUV at a ceremony today at the Vatican. The V8 ride is dark blue with a light interior and Volvo officials say the car, like every Volvo XC90, is designed for safety with features like ROPS (RollOver Protection System).

It looks great - sleek, regal, and comfortable! The Vicar of Christ deserves the best and I'm happy for him.

Nice ride! It's a gift -- so why shouldn't he accept it? He certainly deserves it and it would be rude for him to refuse it.
