If our bishops put the boot in to the New Atheists now, wouldn’t that rebound on us?
A World Youth Day here in 2012 or 2013 would build on the momentum of the Benedict bounce
He was nothing like our traditional idea of what a saint is like: but his time has come
Are we now to expect a quiet undermining of what the Pope achieved?
Otherwise you will prove just how empty your words are
In the end, the atheist coalition discredited itself
The last four days began in anxiety, but ended in euphoria
The papal chemistry is still active on British soil; now, we can relax and enjoy the visit
The Pope’s enemies have, we can only hope, done their worst. As the visit begins, we must watch and pray
The media will not let up. Watch out for the innuendoes and smears
But the campaign to defend them will, I hope, endure long after the visit is over
