Having followed Fr Tim's e mail link and sent my support for the Holy Father yesterday, I popped over to Fr Ray's blog, because he always has photos of Papal appearances so quickly. Does he have a Rome correspondant?
I broke my no clock watching at Mass or in concerts rule to see when it was 11am and therefore noon in Rome and lit a candle for him on the way out. Can't be too careful in these nasty times.
Anyway, blatantly borrowed from Fr Ray, a few people in Rome at lunch-time. No news on the BBC, how strange... Pages of hostile comments on their website, sadly. This about a man who, as he said today, has spent much of his life in a university and has a natural sympathy with students. Oh yes and he's rather clever too.
