A different type of Garden: The Pope and Swiss Guard

I saw this quote in the reporting by VIS (Vatican Information Service):

The Sede Vacante will begin at 8:00pm and the Swiss Guards assigned to him at Castel Gandolfo will take their leave, as their corps is dedicated to the safe-guarding of the Roman Pontiff. Instead, the Vatican Gendarmerie will take over the Pope emeritus’ safety detail.

How interesting how the world works. I am immediately brought to the Garden with Christ, being left alone. Of course, the future Pope emeritus, will not be that alone. In his own spiritual journey, the Holy Father is about to leave his public ministry behind (presumably), and enter into a period of prayer and meditation. For the rest of his life on this earth he will be devoted to praying, and I can only imagine the good that will occur through the fruits of his efforts.

May God preserve the Pope, and make him blessed on the earth.
