In these depressing days there is a need for something cheering and frivolous. And what better than a competition to find the most tasteless objects religieux dedicated to the cultus of our beloved Holy Father?
I offer the following as a modest starter, and encourage readers to submit others in the same vein. The aim is to include all worthy submissions in a book, ‘The Pope Francis Little Chamber of Horrors’, to be published by Libreria Vaticana, with an introduction by Austen Ivereigh.
The competition will be judged by those acknowledged connoisseurs, Frs Spadaro and Rosica.
