Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ll be well aware that the Pope has blessed our nation with his presence.
I wish I lived under a rock…
Believe it or not, I am not an intolerant figment of the imagination, I believe that everyone has the right to follow whichever faith they so choose.
I also believe that faith can be a great comfort during times of hardship and a guiding light for those in need of direction.

Well, I say all, all of us who’re not hypnotised by the big hat.
