Sir, I usually enjoy reading Gerard Noel in The Catholic

Herald. However, his allegation that twenty two years after the death of Pope John Paul I it is as though there had never been such a person as Albino Luciani, is misplaced.

This week's edition of L'Osservatore Romano (p4) contains a report of the beautiful Mass celebrated by the Holy Father on Thursday September 28 for the repose of the soul of Popes Paul VI and John Paul 1.

In his homily, the Holy Father spoke in warm terms of his two predecessors. Of Pope John Paul I, he said: "For Pope Luciani, in particular, the blessedness of those whom the master found watching "at midnight" proved to be true to the letter. And that he was vigilant in his concern for the whole Church is attested by the deep impression he made on the hearts of the faithful, despite the brief days of his Pontificate..."

I leave Gerard Noel to read the remainder of the article for himself, and I know that he will be reassured by it that the Church has not ignored Albino Luciani.

Yours faithfully, THOMAS WYNNE St Margaret's, Roy Bridge, Inverness-shire PH31 4AE.
