Pope Benedict on the UK visit: " I shall be able to see for myself."

The Pope made this remark during the Ad limina visit of the English and Welsh bishops' to Rome early this year. Whatever happens, he will indeed see for himself.

Vatican Radio, as a preliminary to a series of interviews with several of our Bishops , has posted extracts from his Ad limina address to them. In the light of present circumstances they are worth reading again. See here.

As the next 40 days unfold, I expect it will be impossible to avoid occasioanal mention of actual events, but as already indicated ,this 'Oasis' will feature a series of positive posts in the run-up to the papal visit. Tomorrow DV, I hope to consider the relative merits of two well known hyms in honour of the Successor of Peter.

In the meantime, God bless all here.

In Christo pro Papa
