I like this run-down of the first 3 months of Benedict's papacy. It contains some common knowledge, but also some new insights and daily details of Benedict's papal life.
Most interesting, I thought, was the comment that while the crowds loved being in JP the Great's presence, no one every really knew what he said at the time (his Theo of the Body discourses took 15 years to catch on).
Appearently, now the attendees of papal audiences are surpising observers with their careful attention to every word Benedict says.
In other news, apparently Msgr. Camaldo shall replace Marini as director of papal liturgies. I'm under the impression that this will lead to more incense and more Latin and plenty more classic music, but any more information on Camaldo is welcome.
