I’ve Been a Puppet, a Pauper, a Pirate, a Poet, a Pawn and a Pope

I know that everyone thought we were done with papal pap with the election of Francis, and you would have been right, but a devoted delusional follower who does not want to give up the dream sent me a outfit which as you will see below, keeps the “what if” scenario alive.

My papal service would have begun with my name choice. I did a little research and I think I would have chosen Pope Alanus de Rupe (also Alan, Alain de la Roche, Blessed Alan or Blessed Alain de la Roche), Born in September (like myself),in Brittany 1428,he was a Roman Catholic theologian noted for rousing sermons. Although not a Saint, I would have promoted him immediately.

Begging you patience, I won’t drag this out ad nauseum, concluding with some visuals of what my papacy might have briefly looked like.
