Went to St Peter’s Square yesterday for the weekly Papal Audience. I don’t think the Pope knew I was there! If he did, he never let on:)
It brought home the universal nature of our church and the enthusiasm that exists among many for Pope Benedict XVI.
It also brought home the central teaching that a bald head under a burning sun is not a good idea! A priest behind must have watched the microwaving of my skull – he leaned forward and gave me his cap.
