I’d better pull myself together and get with the programme

Pope Benedict XVI, the great theologian, has much to teach us about the proper place of reason

At 83, she has seen a great many state occasions in her lifetime

The papal chemistry is still active on British soil; now, we can relax and enjoy the visit

His documentary, Benedict: Trials of a Pope, was even-handed and sincere

The media will not let up. Watch out for the innuendoes and smears

His address to the Queen will be equally historic, but it’s the one at the Palace of Westminster which will have a lasting impact
