    I was very struck by the mood in Bellahouston this time compared with 1982. Then we were all full of exuberance and celebration at just having a Papal visit. This time was very sombre and reflective. Perhaps we have matured a little- certainly, we have passed through some huge changes in society since then. I was glad to be able to tell my nieces and nephews that I wish I had listened properly to the message of John Paul II back then- it would have saved me a lot of angst!
