- on Cardinal Pell, you can watch an interview with him on The 7.30 Report if you enjoy watching train wrecks. Lateline also offers more revelations (they are certainly spinning it out for all it is worth, but hopefully this is it??);
- Anglo-Catholics have now asked the Pope for a 'magnanimous gesture' that will allow them to come across en masse, so pray hard it all comes off -see Damian Thompson;
- the state of play on the SSPX remains completely unclear! Here is my suggestion. Take a look at their Australian website - it lists out all their priests - so pick one (perhaps whoever is resident in or nearest to your town, or one of those at the seminary) and pray for him to return to full communion with Rome...
And of course, as the big day(s) gets nearer, the most important question that should be on all our minds is...what will the The Chaser boys do this time (and lets hope the Cardinal has actually briefed the Pope on who and what they are, because I'm thinking getting dressed up and in for this one will be all too easy for their creative talents...)!
Finally and more seriously, the pilgrims have started arriving, so do pray for the success of WYD.
