I was musing earlier today. How much does a visit from the Pope to the UK cost both the Vatican, the parishes, (parishioners are asked to donate to their attendance at the Mass event; I believe £20 is the suggested sum) and the State, for provisioning the paraphernalia for the ‘State Visit’ and the security element?

We, as part of the international community, are being exhorted at this time and will be for sometime to come, to dig deep into our collective pockets to assist with awful disasters to humanity, yet……….



  1. I find it disturbing that a man representing the tenets of a religious faith that is meant to be an example to the world for its humanity and compassion, (other unacceptable issues aside here, so as not to muddy the waters further) has not evidently or publicly yet taken the current huge human tragedies into his practical religious orbit.

    I am reminded of the biblical story of The Good Samaritan; and I ask, ‘wherefore art thou?’
