If nothing else, if this is true, it makes the papal visit a success.

Thank you for posting all the pithy quotations from the Holy Father’s many public addresses in Britain. It is very inspiring to hear how aptly and forthrightly he skewers the consciences of British Christians (including their Catholic bishops!), often with their own words (or those of their famous countryman, Blessed John Henry). He truly has a God-given knack for getting to the meat of the matter. I hope & pray that his brief visit has profound and far-reaching repercussions.
Remember that to Protestants and Orthodox, as to many Church Fathers, “the rock upon which the Church is built” does not automatically equate to “the incumbent Bishop of Rome”. So perhaps Rowan Williams is being a bit sly here.
