The above photo was purportedly taken today, June 28, 2018 during the inevitable “visit”of newly-made Cardinals to see Pope Benedict XVI, firmly ensconced among the living residents of Vatican City, who happens to wear a white cassock proper to popes and who still, unlike every other pontiff in history, continues to wear the Fisherman’s Ring after putatively giving up the papacy.

Yes, that looks like Francis bowing and kissing the ring of Benedict.

So, I ask the question to them, to the dubia Cardinals, and to you, what I asked on Twitter today:

Were They Cardinals Going in or Only Coming Out?
