Pope speaking to politicians and other leaders in Westminster Hall where St. Thomas More was condemned to death for his fidelity to the Pope!
All the fears and anxieties that the pope would be humiliated in Great Britain and possibly arrested proved false. He won them over and never budged once on his message and the need for Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular to be active in the social and political process of that country and all of Europe.
The protests were a side show to the actual "gig" as some called the pope's various venues.
His soft spoken demeanor betrayed the rock solid message that he unflinchingly proclaimed. He took a razor to the rampant secularism of Great Britain and all of Europe and cut it to shreds without once blinking and none of the secularists saw the blood spewing forth from their smug ideological agendas.
But will this galvanize the powerful secular media, those in high politics and sadly enough the Judas Iscariots in the Church who truly hate the Catholic Church's traditional teachings in general and truly hate Pope Benedict in particular because he is such a threat to the secularists' domination of Europe. Stay tuned to the news media, maybe even CNN on Saturday night. Let's see how far they will go in discrediting the Holy Father.
