Tickets for the Holy Father's Visit
I was intrigued by the reported statement of Archbishop Vincent Nichols, regarding the visit of the Holy Father in September. The Daily Telegraph reports:
"...the Most Rev Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, insisted that these events are not just for Roman Catholics, even though parishes are organising tickets for the "pilgrim journey". He said: "These are events to which any person is welcome. All they need to do is contact their local Catholic parish."
As far as I know, the availability of tickets to the locations visited by the Pope is pretty limited. One or two tickets per parish seems to be how it's working out.
Will non-Catholic pilgrims take up the Archbishop's kind invitation? If so, I'd quite like to know where the tickets are coming from....
