POPE BENEDICT XVI
The last four days have been wonderful. I managed to watch almost all of the coverage of the Holy Father's visit to the U.K. It is unfortunate that the media here did such a poor job covering his visit, but then that is typical. CNN is usually the biggest offender. CNN seems to only want to focus on the sex abuse scandal while ignoring the significance of the visit given the history of the relationship with the Church and England. A century ago the idea of the pope visiting England would have been unheard of and yet here we are today celebrating just such a visit. And so many of us thought John Paul the Great would be a tough act to follow. Thank God for Benedict.
