Heart Speaks Unto Heart
I’ve just posted this on the Twurch of England blog.
Here at the Twurch of England we applaudÂ all thingsÂ technicalÂ andÂ religious, as long as they are done well. In the light of this, we are delighted byÂ the website that has been setup to accompany the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the UK.
We wanted to know where and when Mr Ratzinger would be in town â€“Â easy to find, including explicit details on where to seeÂ the Pope Mobile! We wondered if we could follow details on Twitter â€“Â not a problem. We fancied downloading a snazzy new desktop for our computer, or seeing about the possibilities of web banners â€“Â easy peasy. In a theological moment we were even curious to learn a bit more about the beatification of John Henry Newman â€“Â curiosity satisfied. Unlike Damian Thompson, we even liked the design forÂ the sanctuary for the beatification service.
All in all, we thought that the Papal Visit website was absolutely superb. But then the inevitable happened â€“ we discovered this, the official â€œyouth songâ€ to go with the visit.
Please be assured, the Church Mouse will be out of therapy in a few weeks time and back to normal. Ish.
Thanks Peter, for that truly unbelievable video. Where has the Mouse booked into for the therapy, and are there any free rooms for the rest of us?
I believe demand outstrips supply. This doesn't surprise me.
There was a much better design for the Popemobile on eChurch Websites:
He should have borrowed LZ7:
I'm sitting in a library so I'm forbidden from listening to the "youth song." Which is perhaps too bad since I'm a "youth." However, judging by the keyboardist on the left's hat, I'm probably not missing anything. ;-)
