What’s wrong with saying that St. John Paul II loved ice cream? Why does it have to sound scandalous? The pope does not entirely forget that he has tastebuds, and he lives in one of the food capitals of the entire world. There’s nothing wrong with a little ice cream, and Italians know how to make ice cream. Still, I enjoyed learning about his favorite gelateria and flavor, which I hope to try the next time in Rome.
