Habemus papem

I remember being told when I was in Egypt all about the procedure for electing a new Coptic Pope. Following much prayer and presumably lots of jangly singing, the name was drawn by lot from three rolled up bits of paper that had been placed in a chalice.

I remember remarking at the time to a Coptic friend, "That is not how we do things back in Scotland".

Oh how wrong I was. Congratulations to Bishop Idris, who becomes our new Primus.

    New Primus
    Does this mean we have to frequent the Caravan Shop just along St Mary’s when the Primus needs refuelling !!!!
