"And I think people will want to know that he did go through that process, because otherwise it will seem as if the church did make an exception for somebody just because of who he is."If this is a real conversion, that is wonderful beyond words. Blair was the most anti-Catholic PM in living memory. The Catholic community is due some clarification.
