About

My name is M. J. Mann.

I was received into the Catholic Church in 1996 and by the grace of God have remained a member ever since.

I am a very amateur student of Alexander the Great, enjoy watching Formula 1 racing and football. In April – May 2019 I walked the Camino Francés. It was one of the best things I ever did. I day dream an awful lot and wish I could be more organised.

If I Could Change One Thing About the Catholic Church, What Would It Be?
I’ll let you know as soon as I have changed myself.

As a final bit of bio I will add that I am very interested in the life of T. E. Lawrence and enjoy a glass of red wine; also – bad puns. Feel very free to tell me any.

Lastly, a big ‘shout out’ to a long suffering friend – and protector: my guardian angel. This blog is dedicated to the greater glory of God but I am very grateful to my guardian angel for all the help he gives me.
