...a DVD of the Papal visit, which I'd bought for Christmas. Really rather good - I was expecting to sneer at it, because it had a sort of "official" feel and I thought perhaps this meant it would be feeble. It isn't. It brings back memories of the joy and happiness of those days...and it includes a good viewing of the meeting between the Pope and leaders of other faiths, with a wonderful welcome from the Chief Rabbi, which was not something widely reported at the time because most attention focused on the great public Masses and the meeting in Parliament etc. Well worth watching. Order it now for a post-Christmas treat.
