The E & W ad limina is over; and more news on that Dove

Late VIS NEWS (Friday's email not received. There is no email on Saturdays.)

The remainder of the E & W prelates saw the Pope in separate audiences on Saturday and this morning. Speaking to the Conference about his projected September visit to England, and of the assurances the bishops had given him about the faith of English and Welsh Catholics, the Holy Father remarked during his address: 'I shall be able to witness that faith for myself'.

Cardinal Pell was also received separately this morning.

That Angelus dove: (see earlier post)
According to VIS, much to the amusement of the Holy Father, the dove flew back into his study before he eventually managed to release it. This must have happened after the kto coverage concluded.
