Pope Benedict XVI in the United Kingdom

As if anyone needed any reminding, Pope Benedict XVI visited England and Scotland on a four-day visit between 16th and 19th September 2010.

A visit which had been anticipated with hope within the Roman Catholic community and with a degree of scepticism in some parts of the media, ultimately captured hearts and minds across the country.

Here we provide a link to the official website created for the visit and also share a reflection on this historic event.  

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the official website then you’re in for a treat.

This is a wonderful resource with videos of all the events, interviews with people who were there and the full text of each of the Holy Father’s speeches and homilies.

And if that’s not enough, there are excellent resources on the Roman Catholic Faith and on the Blessed John Henry Newman.

You are Peter
