Pope Benedict XVI has assured the primate of the Church of Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos II that he will help in any way possible to reverse a Turkish Cypriot demand for an admission fee to enter a Greek Orthodox monastery, in northern Turkish occupied Cyprus.
The illegal Turkish Cypriot regime, which no country except Turkey recognises, imposes an admission fee on pilgrims who visit the Apostle Andreas� Monastery in Turkish occupied Karpass peninsula.

rest here

Maybe the pope can contribute his Swiss Guard to dislodge the illegal Turkish occupiers.  And I"m sure they could do it--no, I'm not joking.
Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!  ;D
