Pope Benedict coming to the UK

How exciting is this? What with the visit of the relics of St Terese and now the forthcoming visit of HH Benedict XVI: I am over the moon. What a day! How wrong was I when I said last year that the pope wouldn't come to the UK. Don't you just love it when the Lord offers you a chance for humility. Ah, well, I'm just too excited to let it all sink in.

H/T to Ruth Gledhill in the Times.


  1. Now I am going to have to decorate the lounge!! (Well,you never know he might visit............).
    Seriously though,it's exciting news! Good to see you posting Father,hope you are settling into Priest life.

  2. Please God the Pope will call by your house, Shadowlands. Thanks for your kind words. It is good to be posting again. I'm now settled into life as an Assistant Priest in a busy parish in Coventry. Priesthood is wonderful: it must be all the prayers offered up!

  3. Hey you're back again Father. I've been checking your Blog daily.

    Now don't leave it to 28 years, like the Pope, before you visit this Blog again.

    Looking forward to reading you.

    God bless.

  4. Thanks, Victor. It is, indeed, good to be back.
