Inside the popemobile

The Daily Mail offers more information than people might possibly need about the "Holy Merc" that will transport the Holy Father tomorrow.

And who's that peering in? Why none other than CV chaplain Fr Stephen Wang -- taken just hours before last night's celibacy debate.

Monitor can add one nugget which the Mail missed. The numberplate, SCV1, stands for "Stato della Citta del Vaticano" -- Vatican City State. But cynical Romans say it really stands for "Se Cristo vedesse" -- "if only Christ could see".
