El Papa

Just back from the Vatican

Every Sunday, when in town, the Pope blesses the crowd in St Peters square.

I think it is well known that I have my reservations about our new Pontiff and I do believe the church is taking a step backwards. When he was announced as Pope I was quite upset and did not speak of our new pope with the respect his office deserves.

Today however opened my eyes

When you see the emotion this man or perhaps his office radiates to the crowd it is spell binding.

Hundreds of thousands recieved his blessing today and I am humbled to have been one of them.

An incredible experiance, to see grown men beside me cry

If only I had their faith.
