PostSubject: Irrational Swiss Guards swear to sacrifice themselves if necessary for the pope   Sun May 07, 2017 12:04 am

Forty new Swiss Guards were sworn in at the Vatican on Saturday, the latest halberd-clutching soldiers of the pope to serve a tradition stretching back 500 years.



A tourist magnet for centuries at the Vatican, the spectacularly dressed Swiss Guards swear to sacrifice themselves if necessary for the pope.

The halberds -- a traditional steel axe-like weapon -- are purely for show in this age of global terrorism where the Vatican is a huge target and the pope is under round-the-clock protection.

And the pope's 110 Swiss Guards do have a cache of more modern weapons than the halberd, stashed away in a secret location.

But their commander, Christoph Graf, also points to another weapon in the Swiss Guard armoury -- the "indestructible" rosary every man gets.

"There are two ways of defending the pope: with weapons and with faith," says Graf, ahead of the swearing-in of the 40 guards (23 German-speaking Swiss, 13 French-speaking and four Italian-speaking).
