Pope back at the Vatican after short vacation

These last few weeks have been quite busy for Benedict XVI. He only had a couple of days to recuperate from his apostolic trip to Mexico and Cuba, before leading all the ceremonies of Holy Week. Shortly after giving the ?Urbi et Orbi? blessing on Easter Sunday, the Pope took a short vacation at his summer residence of Castelgandolfo. But even through his vacation, the Pope was still working. On Wednesday, he took a helicopter from Castelgandolfo to the Vatican, to preside over his weekly general audience in St. Peter?s Square. KLH RR-GdP-BN
