16.9.10

Palace of Holyroodhouse, Meeting with state authorities, 16 September 2010, Benedict XVI

Na saudação que dirigiu à Rainha e demais autoridades civis, à sua chegada a Inglaterra, disse o Santo Padre:

"The Christian message has been an integral part of the language, thought and culture of the peoples of these islands for more than a thousand years. Your forefathers’ respect for truth and justice, for mercy and charity come to you from a faith that remains a mighty force for good in your kingdom, to the great benefit of Christians and non-Christians alike."
