Q. 1. Who decides where the Pope's Summer home should be locate? Can it be outside of Italy? Can the Pope take his holidays wherever he wants to?
A. 1. That is a very good question. The Pope is free to take his holidays wherever he wants. That means he can relocate his Summer home to another country if he chooses to do so. There is a Canon Law that states that no one can contradict a decision (or decree) of the Pope. “There is neither appeal nor recourse against a decision or decree of the Roman Pontiff.” (C.C.C. # 333.3)
While the Pope can take his holidays wherever he wants and/or relocate the Pope's Summer home, it should be remembered that the Pope is the Bishop of Rome. As such, it may not be convenient, nor wise, to be too far from his flock for any lengthy period of time.
