Remarks attributed to Pope Benedict, regarding today’s end of the world forecast

We haven’t been able to get confirmation of this story as yet … but since there may not be much time left … here goes:

Pope Benedict reportedly was asked by a high ranking Vatican official if he had any particular comments or advice for Catholics about the widely promoted claim that Jesus might come again in Judgment, later today.

His Holiness was said to have prayed and reflected for a brief moment.

Then he said, “Tell everybody to look busy!”

Editor’s note: I beg your pardon, but there are (thankfully) very few opportunities to actually use this old joke.
