A pope-stravaganza!

In an otherwise listless story about Pope Francis meeting Egypt's Coptic pope at the Vatican, we find this lovely tidbit:
Tawadros' presence inside the Apostolic Palace meant there were actually three popes inside the Vatican on Friday: Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI was in his retirement home in a monastery inside the Vatican gardens. 
And while the three men believe entirely different things, each is infallible. (Okay, the Copts don't claim this superpower. Still, it's fun.)
