Hard At Work

When Blessed John XXIII was once asked how many worked in the Vatican City State he famously replied "Oh, about half of them".  Well, I think he's probably looking down from heaven with a smile on his face as people are very hard at work preparing for the Conclave. 
Rome Reports has another video for us showing what is going on.  The Sistine Chapel is being transformed - the false floor is being put in place, the windows are being tinted and the scaffold which will be used to put the chimney in place is being erected.  But the saddest images are those showing Pope Benedict's coat of arms being brushed out of the flower bed in front of the Governatorato.
