The Pope celebrated Easter with a shock TV appearance answering questions which he had thought up himself.
It was a daring example of the Pope's new policy of opening up the Vatican to the rising tide of democratic forces. America has welcomed the relaxation of the Dictatorship's rigid hold over the Vatican.
There are now going to be open debates within the Vatican about women priests, conducted by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlesconi who has been advocating the insertion of women priests from the age of 16.
The Pope, following a tradition going back to ancient times, is uneasy about women taking on the roll of ascendancy at so young an age, favouring the tried and tested policy of teenage male youths being up for the job.
This great tussle between the vying merits of the male or female priests has engulfed the Catholic Church for many years, but now a shroud has been discovered that clearly shows a woman priest active during the time of Christ!
The debate for our TV screens: 'Boobs or Balls?' is likely to cause some controversy in the Catholic world.
