  1. I really should have bought that book! The quotes from it are always my very favourites. I wish I’d started with it. In this short sentence, our Holy Father just about says everything that needs to be said. Reminds me of my favourite Pope St John Paul II quote, when asked a question: “How to pray? That is an easy matter. I don’t care how you pray, so long as you do pray!”… I’d better get off the laptop and say Lauds then!!!
