Time for Another “Wrist Strong Campaign”

July 17th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

Fate draws another parallel between us here at Cleansing Fire and Stephen Colbert. For watchers of the Colbert Report, their papa-bear was injured a couple years ago when in the studio, breaking his wrist. Afterward, he started a “Wrist Strong Campaign,” whose proceeds went to veterans and injured soldiers. Well, our dear Pope Benedict fell this morning and broke his wrist. Details are still coming out, so I will provide updates as they are released. All indications are that he is already back to normal, save the use of one wrist/hand.

Update: ROME, Italy (CNN) — Pope Benedict XVI was briefly hospitalized after suffering a minor fracture to his right wrist, the Vatican said Friday.

The pope, 82, fell Thursday night in his room in Val d’Aosta, a mountainous region of northwestern Italy where the pope spends his summer holidays, the Vatican said.

He was taken to the hospital in the region’s central town of Aosta on Friday morning after celebrating his daily private Mass, the Vatican said.

    Let's hope this is not the hand he would use to sign off on Bishop Clark's resignation!

    Stay healthy, Pope Benedict, please!

    I agree, Pope Benedict should stay in a foam-covered germ-proof room until July 2012. We need a healthy Papa to save our diocese.
