The other day I mentioned that I had heard that Msgr. Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham would be received by Pope Benedict XVI.
This is on VIS:
Il Santo Padre ha ricevuto questa mattina in Udienza:
Em.mo Card. William Joseph Levada, Prefetto della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, con:
S.E. Mons. Alan Stephen Hopes, Vescovo tit. di Cuncacestre, Ausiliare di Westminster (Gran Bretagna), e
il Rev.mo Mons. Keith Newton, Ordinario dell’Ordinariato Personale di Our Lady of Walsingham.
This Pope does not receive nearly as many people as the late John Paul II. Many high-powered figures don’t see the Pope when they go to Rome. The fact that Pope Benedict received Msgr. Newton is a sign of His Holiness personal commitment to the success of the provisions of Anglicanorum coetibus.
Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity.
