Toward the end of our filming, the director of the Vatican Museums, who had accompanied us throughout the process, asked whether I wanted to see the "Room of Tears." This is the little antechamber, just off of the Sistina, where the newly-elected Pope repairs in order to change into his white cassock. Understandably, tears begin to flow in that room, once the poor man realizes the weight of his office.

Z notes in his post, they were martyred by a sexually deviant King, a tribal Lord. Fr. Z calls him a ritual pedophile.
