The Holy Father in Westminster

One year ago today, the Holy Father used the occasion of his speech in Westminster Hall to remind the leaders of the nation of the place that religion should have in society. 

His direct approach in defence of faith, especially in the place where St Thomas More was tried, was very much in the spirit of the saint of the day, St Robert Bellarmine, a Doctor of the Church, a Cardinal and a Bishop, and a great defender of the Faith.

After Westminster Hall, the Holy Father moved on to Westminster Abbey for a moving ecumenical service.  Here is one of the hymns from that service.
