The return of the papal throne...

This pic will make a good screensaver for you. Last seen in 1978 with Papa Luciani, here it is again after twenty-eight years. Pope John Paul opted not to use a throne and so it sat in storage and then in the Lateran Palace museum until last December of 2006 when it was brought back into papal use.
