Habemus Papam in Manila
His hat flew away!
(SPOT.ph) The Pope is here! That’s all we really need to say now and that his zucchetto flew off. It’s kind of nice that he had that awkward moment. Even the Pontiff has to deal with wardrobe malfunctions. His Holiness then shook hands with President Benigno Aquino III and the welcoming rituals ensued.
The Pope was all smiles as he proceeded to greet our favorite public officials gathered on the tarmac (including Vice President Jejomar Binay, DILG Secretary Mar Roxas, and even DBM Secretary Butch Abad). Meanwhile, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle received a big hug from the Pontiff. We imagine it felt beatific.
And by the way, he got his zucchetto back. Now, off to the Papal Nunciature!
