NPR just posted this great little etiquette guide for everyone to keep on hand in the event that you meet the Pope. A couple of things to note:
- If the Pope approaches you, don't just stand there - genuflect
- You can kiss the ring if you are Catholic. If not, just shake his hand
- Let him lead the conversation and speak up!
- Stand up when he enters and leaves the room
- Wear your Sunday best
This is great for everyone in NY who does not want to be rude. You never know where you could run into the Popemobile. I really appreciate NPR's attention to etiquette.
