The Pope prays. Some Catholics get upset.

The Holy Father, while visiting the renowned Blue Mosque in Istanbul yesterday, "moved his lips, evidently in prayer."

While I'd like to believe that most Catholics take it for granted that a Catholic pope is supposed to pray wherever he finds himself, some commenters at Catholic World News seem to have a problem with this.

Why? I've read the comments. The "shocked" ones make no sense to me.

(P.S. Off topic, but can somebody tell me why the word "Gravatar" seems to be insinuating itself in this blogs comments? Thanks.)
