Today is the 30th anniversary of Blessed John Paul II's Papal Mass at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, Scotland. Where you there? See today's Scottish Catholic Observer centre spread feature (link below) for Polish community's reaction.
Tomorrow, 450 Scottish schoolchildren with receive the inaugural Pope Benedict XVI Caritas Award and hear a message from the Holy Father, part of the legacy of the 2010 Papal Visit to Scotland and approved by the Vatican. Two posthumous awards will be presented to the families of Reamonn Gormley a pupil at John Ogilvie High School, Hamilton who died in February 2011, the victim of a violent crime, and Joseph Wilson, a pupil of Taylor High School in Motherwell, who died unexpectedly in December 2011.
We can see why In 1188 Clement III declared 'the church of Scotland to be the daughter of Rome.'
