Here we have all the filmed speeches, addresses, homilies and much more. You can watch videos, look at galleries and re-read or listen to all our media covering Benedict XVI’s visit to England and Scotland.
The final day of the visit focused very much on the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman in Cofton Park in Birmingham - adjacent, fittingly, to Rednal where Cardinal Newman was buried and the place where Newman and his community came for rest and recreation in the Lickey Hills.
A million copies of the ‘Magnificat – Liturgies and Events of the Papal Visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the United Kingdom’ were distributed to parishes across England, Scotland and Wales.
The booklet, “The Pope in the UK”, introduced the theme and aimed to answer some simple questions about the visit itself, the call of faith and its unfolding in daily life and the role of the Catholic Church.
"Blessed John Henry Newman’s clear-minded search to know and express the truth in charity, at whatever cost to his own personal comfort, status and even friendships, is a wonderful testimony of a pure desire to know and love God in the communion of the Church."
