Hello, I'm here as a representative of the Catholic Church. As a representative of the Catholic Church, I'd like to remind you of the case of Dr Raj Mattu who exposed the failings of the health trust that he worked for.

Instead of being hailed for his honesty, he was vilified for breaking ranks. His employer sacked him and did everything it could to keep him quiet. Some institutions are like that, they can't face up to the wrong they have done, no matter how bad or widespread it might be. They prefer to hush it all up rather than let their wrong doing be known. They offer meaningless, individual apologies, but fail to address the institutional problems that are the real issue. Their leadership remains closed, self serving and lacking in transparency and accountability.

As a representative of the Catholic Church, I know exactly what you're thinking right now. That's exactly like St Peter on Good Friday.

Good Friday is the day when we remember people who are suffering, especially victims of human trafficking. As the Big Book of Magic Stuff writes, on eliminating slavery, "Well, it's not really that bad, is it?"

Then, in a couple of days time, we go back to normal.

Happy Holy Week everyone! Although happy in a very sad way. It's so sad, so very, very sad. Then again, come the end of Holy Week and the start of the week after Holy Week, we'll all be happy again, right on schedule.

Fortunately, you've got me here, to tell you the True Meaning of Holy Week. It's exactly like the new Matisse exhibition, isn't it?
