Advice from a Cardinal

Returning from Mancinelli's yesterday morning, I was crossing over to the Piazza San Pietro and quite by chance met Cardinal George Pell. I was delighted to be able to give him my humble greetings and exchange a couple of words with him. He was probably on his way to lunch but had time to give me some kindly advice, aussie style: "Tim, - keep your guard up and keep moving around the ring."

Priceless!
