In 1975 the American gridiron team the Dallas Cowboys won a semi-finals game against the Minnesota Vikings in the last seconds of play. The Cowboys’ quarterback, Roger Staubach, threw a long-shot, desperation pass to his wide receiver, Drew Pearson.

The World Meeting of Families; a non event?

It is just over a month to the gathering in Dublin for the World Meeting of Families. My impression at this stage is that, if Pope Francis was not coming, it would pass by quietly, not making much, if any, impression — a fairly inconsequential non-event. But Francis will add his own form of charisma to the week. I am really pleased that he is coming, and I have booked my ticket for the Phoenix Park.
