The Jon Voight film Pope John Paul II late last night...I've seen it before, but then lent the DVD to a friend and have only just had the chance to view it again. Woke this morning still thinking about it. In an uncomfortable sense - which was not the case when the film first appeared in 2006 - the scenes of Church life in 1970s Communist-dominated Poland present tensions and difficulties which are faintly echoed now in modern Britain...we need strong Bishops like Poland had. Where is our Wyszynski? Where is our Woytila?
