    An interview with Pope Francis on the second anniversary of his election:
    “I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief: four or five years; I do not know, even two or three,”he added. “Two have already passed. It is a somewhat vague sensation. Maybe it’s like the psychology of the gambler who convinces himself he will lose so he won’t be disappointed and if he wins, is happy. I do not know. But I feel that the Lord has placed me here for a short time, and nothing more.”

    “That there, is a their”, sayeth our senior citizen from the Outback.

    “Thar she blows”, as Chesterton once said. But, “who am I to judge?” One question I’d like to put to His Holiness is why he thinks people who “breed like rabbits”, like his mother did, need to “expect a punch”?

    I wouldn’t say I am from the out back JH….. The roads are paved from the Capital ( Perth) all the way to my front driveway

    Imagine living in Perth. Talk about the far side of the world. Isolated thousands of miles from the rest of civilization. I remember a National Geographic essay on Perth from about 30 years ago (I’m sure there’ve been others since) and I must say it seemed so magical; but strewth © mate, I cannot imagine actually wanting to live there.
