Fiery Pope!

Did good old Karol really appear in a bonfire during a ceremony on his death’s second anniversary (already this April) – and if so, what does he want to tell us with this purgatorial or hellfire look?

Or is it a dancing John Travolta? Seemed to me, too…

Was it manipulated (which the photographer apparently denies strictly)? Or is it simply anything you want to interpret into it (see pareidolia)? I’m favoring the latter…

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
