found on the hard drive

Jan 12, 2012


In my desire to be distracted from packing and cleaning, I started to sort out some computer files.  There I discovered many saved articles and bits and pieces.

In September 2010 Pope Benedict visited the UK.  Almost all the media coverage of the his visit took a negative slant.

Rosemary McLeod wrote in the Press at the time of the visit. You might (like me) appreciate her comment.

I found it encouraging to hear an intelligent writer, (who makes no claim to be ‘religious’ or especially supportive of the pope), write a refreshingly objective reflection.
