Short of food? Let them eat fish

Short of food? Let them eat fish

Press: Starting in The Mail on Sunday was a shrewd way for the Archbishop to get his point across

Misled by a sure and certain hope

Misled by a sure and certain hope

Press: THERE are some serious stories this week, some interesting ones, and some that are just flat out weird. The weirdest of these is undoubtedly that of the Wald family, of Hamilton, Ontario, who were firm in their hope of the resurrection

Bathos at home, barbarism abroad

Press: TEXT messages are now the staple of salacious court reports, and I sometimes wonder why people choose to be indiscreet in a medium so very long-lived

It is also an interesting example of how little even the very best journalists can understand of what is happening in fast-moving stories - not because we are particularly stupid or ill-informed, but because no one knows

Quiet revolution at the Vatican

Quiet revolution at the Vatican

Press: THE most astonishing Vatican document of the past half-century appeared on Monday - and, of the British dailies, only the Telegraph noticed it

Batter my head, three-person’d God

Batter my head, three-person’d God

Press: CHRISTIANITY doesn't get much more muscular than Manny Pacquiao, a Filipino boxer who has won ten world championships at eight different weights. He gave an interview that wonderfully bewildered The Observer's Kevin Mitchell

Sex scandals: a basic primer

Sex scandals: a basic primer

Press: THIS week the difference between Anglicans and Roman Catholics was not too theological for the papers: the Anglican sex scandal was gay; the Roman one was straight
