Sorry - turn your back (alright, go sick) for a day or two, and everything happens ! However, normal service is now resumed . . . more or less, anyway.
There is an excellent Petition, supporting the forthcoming visit of His Holiness to the UK; and I would encourage every Catholic - and indeed everyone of goodwill - to sign it, to show the Holy Father what 'Mary's Dowry' really feels about his visit.
As a footnote; whilst sick abed, I received a text message telling me of the Petition, and urging me to sign it . . . from an Anglican priest friend. That made me feel very good, and I thank him for it.
Sign the Petition HERE.
