Pope Benedict XVI is coming to Scotland

YOU read it here first. Pope Benedict XVI has confirmed he will travel to Scotland later this year as part of his UK visit. Responding to an address by Cardinal Keith O’Brien at the Vatican today, the Holy Father said: “Later this year, I shall have the joy of being present with you and the Catholics of Scotland on your native soil.”

Eleven members of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland are currently in Rome on their ad limina visit.
