I think it was immensely witty of our beloved Holy Father to give Dr Welby a reproduction of S Gregory's crosier ... there must be a sermon in that ... but it would have said more for poor Welby's own sense of humour (oxymorologizo?) if he had given Bergoglio in return a reproduction of S Pius V's triregnum.

What will Bergoglio give the Swedish Lutheran 'bishops' at the end of this month as they venerate together the Stuprator Borae? I'm putting my bets on a jumbo-size Plenary Indulgence, accompanied by a whopping invoice and a framed photograph of S Peter's in Vaticano.

The world will swoon when the see photos of the Vicar of Christ bowing for a blessing from a married lesbian Bishop

These real acts was not even something Monty Python dared mock as a possiblity.

That will be something to look forward to, not. Hopefully the Pope will state Catholic Truth clearly and politely, but I have say that might not happen, to say the least.

Welby's sense of humour?

Phoebô mê oxymorologizeis.

Never heard HIM try to be funny. More Dean Inge-ish.
