My good friend Martin is a writer whose blog I have recommended before.
Yesterday he discussed the election of Pope Francis.
His piece starts:-
“East Kilbride Bus Station isn’t really the sort of place where one would usually expect to undergo a life-changing experience, but I suppose it was good a location in which to learn that one’s Pope is now an Argentinian Jesuit as any other.”
I highly commend his piece, which can be read in full on Martin’s blog here.
I can also acknowledge that his predictions about the “Brito-centric” coverage have been spot on.
