Did you know?

To get in on the current Pope o-mania, can I point out that the Pope's full title is

"Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Patriach of the West, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the State of the Vatican City, Servant of the Servants of God"

Can you imagine the business cards?

By comparison, the Orthodox Pope goes by the much more reasonable

"Successor of Saint Mark the Apostle, Shepherd of Shepherds, Father of Fathers, Supreme Pontiff of All Metropolitans and Bishops, Judge of the World, and Beloved of Christ"

The Coptic Pope is positively restrained, being formally known as

"Pope and Patriarch of the See of Alexandria and of All the Predication of the Evangelist St. Mark"
