PopeWatch: Papal Phone Call

PopeWatch was working in his office when he received a phone call.  His secretary reported, “Heavy Hispanic accent, doesn’t sound Mexican.”  PopeWatch took the call.

“Are you the gringo who writes for The American Catholic?”

PopeWatch hesitantly  acknowledged that he was.

“This is the Pope.”

“I recognize your voice now Holiness.  I thought from our last conversation that you wanted me not to call you again.”

“Si, es verdad, but I said nothing about me calling you.”

“I understand, but why are you calling me?”

“I will explain that in my next call in a few days.  Stay healthy gringo.”

The line went dead.  The secretary of PopeWatch observed that the calls get nuttier by the day.
