On Yom Kippur, while I was coming out of the synagogue, across the street I saw two young girls holding up a banner saying: "We love the Pope more than beans on toast".
Being a life-long lover of beans on toast, naturally I was curious. "Really!?" I asked.
"We're off to see the Pope in Hyde Park," they said. "Want to come?" Immediately I decided to go for the best double whammy in town, the Chief Rabbi and the Pope.
"Can you get me in?" I asked Father Paul, a young Irishman from West Sussex.
"How much is a ticket?"
"Oh don't you worry about that," he said.
