Three moments of tearfulness ...
... When the Pope completed his proclamation of Cardinal Newman as Blessed.
... When those fine young seminarians at Oscott sang "Ad multos annos" as their farewell to their dear Holy Father.
... When our wonderful Pope Benedict climbed the steps to the plane that would take him safely home, after his packed and exhausting visit.
And a moment of thankfulness and relief, as the plane rose into the sky and gently disappeared into the low cloud.
Happy days, so poignant, and, please God, so rich in fruit.
