Papal Visit: Big Mass - Time To Plan

Among the scanty information released about the Pope's visit, one fact shines out; Coventry! The Pope will visit Edinburgh, Birmingham, London and Coventry.

That means Coventry Airport for the stadium Mass, a site big enough for as many people will come, and a site big enough to allow any sort of Catholic to start planning now for how his or her type of Catholic will prepare for the visit of His Holiness.

So: we have months to plan for (for example) a station along the way with a beer tent, brass band playing pre-1960 hymns, refreshment for pilgrims on their way to Mass ...

Do you get my drift?
