PopeWatch on Thursday received his long anticipated package from Pope Francis. After giving it a perfunctory sweep with a mine detector, PopeWatch carefully opened it, only to find another box. After five more boxes PopeWatch found a blueray of a Spanish dubbed version of The Maltese Falcon (1941). Attached to it was a note which read: “Gringo, you will find that this is an interesting video to watch. Pay special attention to what is said by Senor Greenstreet. What he said then is verdad today. Francis.” A mystery. PopeWatch hates mysteries. To be continued.
And with that PopeWatch is on Easter hiatus until April 22, 2019.
