“Christmas is a great occasion to get together with my friends and chat about RuneScape,” said the Supreme Pontiff, adding that he enjoys drawing lots and telling stories to his fellow players, and that it is just his favorite time of year to chat about RuneScape.

“It’s always a nice little thrill. And I have so many great memories from my days as a RuneScape player.” At press time, the Pope had been spotted playing his favorite version of the game on his iPad, which he insisted was for “educational purposes only.”
