NEW YORK (GaeaTimes.com) — Pope Benedict XVI visited Britain on his four day tour. His first public appearance at Great Britain was celebrated as 65,000 Roman Catholics gathered at the Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park. It was a lifetime experience for most catholics as they had the sight of the Pope standing at the Altar.
It was an impressive gathering and Catholicism was observed to the fullest. On the way to the Altar, the Pope waited to bless some of the catholics who were suffering from unrecoverable diseases as they prayed for some miraculous recovery. After a formal greeting ceremony the Pope and the Queen exchanged gifts. A facsimile of 85 drawings by Hans Holbein the Younger was presented to the Pope. The Pope presented the Lorch Gospels drawing to the Queen.
Thank you very much. It’s lovely.
, the Queen said.
The crowd in front of the Altar stood for a few hours as the greetings and love of Jesus spread around.
