Benedict XVI to Surrender Ring; Keep Mexican Shoes

Papos

UPDATE: Thanks to my followers I learned Benedict will not necessarily wear his Mexican shoes on his last day (Feb. 28) but will “definitely” keep them upon his retirement.

The Vatican today announced Benedict XVI will lose the Swiss Guard, the papal ring and his iconic red shoes when he retires Feb. 28. He will, however, hang on to his Mexican brown leather shoes… which this blog will refer to as #Papos.

Happy retirement… and Keep on walkin’

¡Ajúa!
