Pope Francis speaks English

As he arrived in Sri Lanka yesterday, Pope Francis surprised everyone by speaking not in Italian but in English. Despite the fact that he is still in need of a bit of pronunciation coaching (if they need someone to do the job, just ring me!), this was an important gesture to Sri Lankans and the English-speaking world.

I look forward to the day when he can perhaps celebrate the Ordinariate Use Mass with our Ordinaries in the Vatican – wouldn’t that be something?
