Blessing the Benedict XVI Commemorative Plaque
The Benedict XVI Commemorative Plaque
On Friday 27 September, His Grace, Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westmister, solemnly blessed the new stone at the West Door which commemorates the visit of His Holiness Benedict XVI to Westminster Cathedral during His Holiness’ 2010 State Visit.
Here is the official translation of the Latin text:
On 18 September 2010 Benedict XVI came to Britain at the invitation of Queen Elizabeth. He celebrated the Mass of the Most Precious Blood here showing what advantage faith may be to society through the example of Blessed J H Newman.
