Prime Minister Mikati Meets the Pope

Prime Minister Najib Mikati met with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican on Monday and used the visit as an opportunity to invite the pontiff to visit Lebanon next year, an aide from the PM’s office said.

The Vatican did not say whether the pope would accept the invitation but informed sources said a trip is being planned by the Vatican in April in which the pope would present Middle Eastern bishops with an “apostolic exhortation.”

And is it just me, or is the pope looking a lot less creepy-sinister-verging-on-pure-evil than usual in these pics? [Hello Clarice.]
