Does the Pope have a vacation?
QUESTION: Does the Pope have a vacation?
ANSWER: Of course, the Pope has a vacation, although most often it is very “relative”. Traditionally, the last Popes spent their summer vacations in Castel Gandolfo near Rome or stayed in the Vatican. And St. John Paul II, like Benedict XVI later, loved to go on vacation to the mountains, where, as everyone knows, Pope Wojtyla even went downhill skiing.
