The official statement of the Bishops’ Conference:

“We are encouraged and pleased at the news which has emerged about the possible official visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the UK next year.

“We are glad the Holy Father is giving such consideration to the invitations he has received from Her Majesty’s Government, which accord closely to the wishes and requests also expressed by the Bishops of England & Wales.

“The prospect of a visit by Pope Benedict fills us with joy.”

So….what does it mean? Will he? Won’t he?

Meanwhile Fr Tim does the round-up.
