Beautiful inscription behind Pope Benedict, but I don't quite get the last bit.

"Christ defends his people from every apple."

The Bible doesn't say that the forbidden fruit eaten by Adam and Eve was an apple--that's just a popular tradition.

Every apple... That’s funny.

Remember the Lord’s prayer. “... Sed libera nos a malo”

Malo is evil.

It doesn’t say anything about apples. “An omni malo” = “from every evil”.

Old Latin class verse:

Malo I would rather be
Malo in an apple tree.
Malo than an evil man
Malo in adversity!
