At Westminster Abbey, the Pope reflected on Petrine ministry

Catholic World News - September 22, 2010

Journalist Terry Mattingly of GetReligion.org was one of the few observers who picked up on Pope Benedict’s reference to St. Edward the Confessor during his visit to Westminster Abbey, and the implications of that reference for the cause of Christian unity.

    Our dear Pope Benedict XVI is truly the "defender" of the Catholic Faith and the Catholic Church that Christ Himself founded 2000 years ago. I say BRAVO to what the Pope had to say at Westminster Abbey in England! All Catholics and Protestant denomincations should be very proud to have such a saintly man looking after the welfare of the Catholic Church and the welfare of every Christian and non Christian people throughout the whole world. I say BRAVO again to our saintly Pope!
