Not for the first time, the Italian gossip magazine "Chi" seems to have been given preferential access to pictures of Benedict - this time his 90th birthday event - arranged, of course, by Ganswein.
This time Chi points out the device that Benedict now wears on his right wrist. It looks like a particularly blingy watch, but it is a medical device allowing him to call for help in the event of sudden illness or a fall.
Benedict is now clearly very infirm and it is astonishing that no qualified male attendant has been appointed to help him with intimate tasks. It is highly inappropriate for a group of laywomen - who are not his family, no ,matter how often the sentimental claims of them being a "papal family" is repeated - to do those tasks.
It probably does not suit the master of the household to have a stranger enter the clique - especially if he turns out to have a mind of his own.
His birthday celebration was dominated by politicians. The only member of his family present was his brother and none of his old Bavarian friends were there. It is naive to believe that this is what he wanted.

Not all men want to be "man-handled" by another male! You who are so in tune with the "homo" agenda probably won't accept this: that ordinary men prefer to be washed, fed and dressed by a friendly female helper. Blessings. . . . and never jump to the wrong conclusions! Not all men who are Catholic priests are. . . . . gay.

Unicorn, do you really think Card. Schönborn is Benedict's most faithful disciple? I'm surprised you and Benodette aren't still lamenting the absence of Bishop Clemens and Prof. Stampa.
Unicorn, I know you are a male and probably a priest. Unfortunately you seem to have no understanding whatsoever about normal life. You are totally out of touch with reality.

That Benedict took the four Memores with him into retirement shows to me only that he recognized their loyal, faithful, able, loving and dedicated service to him
As for Clemens not becoming papal secretary, I initially thought Benedict too humble to appoint someone already a bishop to that post and too soft to fire Gänswein. But now I believe that Benedict by the time be was elected pope had come to appreciate the ability, dedication and loyalty of Gänswein and wanted to keep him at his side.
It was Benedict's own initiative to find Gänswein a position in the Curia that didn't conflict with his remaining his secretary.
It is my belief that Gänswein would have preferred to become archbishop of his home diocese of Freiburg to remaining in the Curia, but he cannot leave Benedict as long as Benedict is alive. Gänswein always sounded authentic to me when he spoke of his longing for more pastoral work.
... it was Benedict's failure to clear their names or Msgr. Ratzinger's failure to come to their defense that persuaded me that his "oldest and most loyal friends" may have been less than fully loyal.
