If the guard is a Swiss Guard, that implies to me that he works for the uh, Swiss Guard Company. His employer is the Swiss Guard Company or whatever, not the Pope. His job is to guard the Pope. If he's sitting down on the job and munching goodies, then he's not performing his guarding duties, which appear to include standing (not sitting) in front of the Pope's door all night, and being vigilant to make sure that some baddies are not going to get passed him. He's supposed to be paying attention to his guarding duties, not paying attention to eating and drinking.

The Pope just cost this poor guy his job. So now the Pope has to go out every night and bring these goodies to the barracks or prison cell or wherever this no-longer-guarding guard is spending his nights.

Nah, I don't think the Pope is that ignorant.
