Interesting question, tdarlene! Unfortunatly I don't know if the Pope is left hand or not, but maybe some member expert in graphology can tell us, I'm interested to know it! :)

I'm not graphology expert. You can write with this or that hand and it could look that you're f.ex. left hand when you really are right hand. It depend of that how you hold your pen during writing. But good expert can recognize that.

About the Pope he is right hand. Photos #71071212, 71071203

Pope Benedict XVI holds his Sunday Angelus-prayer, from a window of the Pontiff's summer residence in Castelgandolfo 13 August 2006. The Pontiff said that the "holiday weather should not make us forget the serious conflict in the Middle East."

The Pope of Rome isn't royalty,as the Popedom of Rome is an elective monarchy.The current Pope of Rome is an extremely controversial figure because of his membership of the Hitler Youth,& not popular with a lot of people,especially the Protestants of Northern Ireland & members of the Anglican & Lutheran Churches,as he gave a speech back in 2000 in which he described Protestants,especially Anglicans & Lutherans as 'deficient'.

Pope to take stroll down memory lane in Germany

Pope Benedict takes a trip down memory lane this weekend, going home to his roots in Germany's Catholic heartland of Bavaria to visit the places that influenced him as a young man.

The Sept 9-14 trip, his second to Germany in little more than a year, also gives him a chance to launch a European-wide appeal for the continent to rediscover a traditional faith that he feels is increasingly threatened by secularisation

Where did it say that the Pope was Royalty? No one has said that. I think the fact that he is the head of the Vatican gives him as much right to be on this forum as anyone else, whether you like him or not!

Secondly, in regard to you brining up his Hitler Youth (HJ) membership. In the March of 1939 a law was passed effectively conscripting all eligible youth into the Hitler youth organisations. The Pope was one of the 4 million who managed to evade joining the organisation up until that point, and was forced to join along with many others. What parent is going to risk having their children taken away and put in orphanages (or worse) by disobeying? I don't know why people always bring up him being in HJ. It doesn't mean he was a Nazi. Everyone had to join whether they liked it or not. If he really was a Nazi and his parents were too, don't you think they would have placed the Pope in the Deutsches Jungvolk (for younger boys from 10-14)?

Thirdly, you can’t just make comments without supporting your claims with evidence. Do you have a link for this ‘deficient’ comment? It’s not enough just to say he said it, but you need to know the context in which it was written. It may have a completely different meaning. And, the majority of Protestants in Northern Ireland do not like the Catholics anyway, not just for religious regions, but for their politics (the Catholics are predominately Nationalists and the Protestants are mainly Unionists). So of course the Pope isn’t going to popular with the Protestants in Northern Ireland.

REGENSBURG, EUROPA - SEPTEMBER 13: Pope Benedict XVI (R) and his brother Georg Ratzinger pray at the grave of their parents on September 13, 2006 in Regensburg, Germany. Aside from the official program, this day has been marked private and scheduled above all as a day for the Pope to meet his brother, Apostolic Protonotary Georg Ratzinger, who lives in Regensburg. Apart from only one official appointment, the blessing of a new organ in the Old Chapel in Regensburg, Pope Benedict XVI visited the cemetery and the adjacent St. Josef church near Pentling where he once lived and where his parents and his sister Maria are buried in the cemetery
