On this day seven years ago...

...I was staying in my father's house and, shortly after getting up, I switched on the television. (Television in the morning is something I normally regard as an abomination!) I found the Sky News Channel and they seemed to be showing mass live from the Sistine Chapel with the new Pope and the cardinals. Pope Benedict was preaching and I listened. 
Suddenly it dawned upon me that he was not speaking Italian but LATIN! 
 In my joy I shouted out "Habemus papam! We have a pope...a Catholic pope! We can all be Catholics again!"
