Non Angli sed Angeli
The Pope has left Britain, with a smile on his face and to an extent a smile on the country's face. The quote above, from Gregory the Great, on discovering some English slaves and declaring them to be Angels rather than Angles, in fact continues 'si forent Christiani': they should be made Christians.
Perhaps that's what McRatzinger has in mind. An uphill struggle, as I shall be commenting in a later post.
