I can hardly contain my joy at the wonderful reception the Catholics of Scotland gave the Holy Father today. After the sustained and vicious media campaign against the Church and Pope Benedict of the last few months they did a wonderful job of being there and being joyful. OK so the music, despite the fine things we have heard from James Macmillan, might have left something to be desired but the background against which all this took place makes it all the more wonderful. I hope and pray that we can match their effort.
It is that Christian joy that really annoys the enemies of Christ.
Well. Now it is our turn. Come on England! and Wales!
