  • I heard some Catholics claiming Pope Benedict glitters when sunshine hits him.
  • +5 no answer from me but I took the question as a joke [ and I smiled :) ] and the DR bothered me and if the question is a serious query, than more Power to the Pope!! He has a right to watch any movie he wishes -- just like the rest of us! :)
  • 1) I highly doubt this, because the Vatican issued a public condemnation of the movie: "Monsignor Franco Perazzolo, of the Pontifical Council of Culture, described the film as a “deviant moral vacuum”. “This theme of vampires in Twilight combines a mixture of excesses that as ever is aimed at young people and gives a heavy esoteric element,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying. He added: “Men and women are transformed with horrible masks and it is once again that age-old trick or ideal formula of using extremes to make an impact at the box office. “This film is nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message and as such is something that should be of concern.”" Source and further information: http://blog.taragana.com/e/2009/11/20/vatican-condemns-new-moon-as-a-deviant-moral-vacuum-62551/ However, the "Catholic News Service" did not have such harsh words about the movie: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/movies/09mv133.htm 2) Here some contribution of Pope Benedict XVI to culture: "Pope Benedict XVI sings and prays along to a mix of modern music and ancient church chants in a new album presented Tuesday before its release at the end of the month. The album, entitled “Alma Mater — Music from the Vatican,” includes eight original pieces of contemporary music, interwoven with Gregorian chants and the pope’s voice. Benedict sings a hymn and recites prayers to the Virgin Mary in various languages, including Italian, French and Latin." "The pope’s voice was not recorded specifically for the project."
