The Pope Prepares to Visit Britain

Hosted by

In 1982, John Paul II made the first papal visit to Great Britain since Henry the VIII broke with the Vatican. This week, Pope Benedict XVI will conduct the first official state visit, beginning in Edinburgh. His published itinerary contains a gap that so far has been unexplained. The Independent of London reports that plans are being laid for the Pope to hold private meetings with sex-abuse victims as he has in other countries. Jerome Taylor is the religious affairs correspondent for the Independent of London.
