Pope set for live link-up at Murrayfield in Scotland, UK

The Scotsman's chief news correspondent Gethin Chamberlain reports today that Sir Bob Geldof has another great idea. He has invited the Pope to Scotland to conduct a mass at Murrayfield stadium to coincide with the Make Poverty History march in the run-up to the G8 summit.

According to the report, talks with the stadium are believed to have already taken place with a view to staging the event on 2 July. The Vatican is understood to have told Mr Geldof that the Pope will be unable to attend in person, but that he could appear in a live link-up from Rome on a giant video screen set up in the stadium. There are also suggestions that Nelson Mandela could appear via a similar live link. Full Story

It would be great to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu participating too.
