I think 4 or 5...

Six actually, dear Eric.  That took me about two seconds to find out.  Don't you have Google on your computer?!!

Pius XII
John
Paul
John Paul
John Paul II
Benedict  

I don't know how many she's met either by them visiting the UK or a visit to the Vatican. She met John Paul at least 3 times--at least in 1980 and 2000. She wore a mantilla at those two--once with a tiara and once with a black hat--so I'm guessing she was visiting him. She wore a dress when he came to the UK.

Of course, Pius V had a very bad relationship with the previous (reigning) Queen Elizabeth.  :)

EII and Pope John XXIII in 1961

Why was that so? Tell me more :)
Pope John XXIII was so cute. When he was at school, a teacher asked the class what´s heavier: a ton of feathers or a ton of iron. All the classmates said: of course the iron. But just John said: both are equal heavy. The teacher praised him, because it was right. After the school, the schoolmates bashed poor John up.

What was so cute about that, Rani ?
 GDElla, I doubt very much the Queen and JP I ever met, at least when he was Pope. His reign lasted only about a month, not enough time to even organise a visit
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Not the story was cute. It was just a little story.

He is my favourite pope.

I share your opinion, he was very influential to me.
 Of course, those kids did not know they were bullying  a future POPE!

but well done to the Italians for producing such a brilliant ship
( tickets went on sale for the current  Med  cruise on  april  1st  2010
....  they were sold in  24 mins !  )
(anyone booked for the world cruise   setting sail  Jan 2011
.....  First  stop  New York   ?  )

We are considering it for a Scandanavian cruise in May, 2011.  Have  already made an Atlantic  crossing on the QM2.
