In anticipation of the Pope's visit to the UK next week, The Tablet has been running a series in which they asked prominent British Catholics the question: If you had five minutes with Pope Bendict, what would you say to him?
Here at Q & A, we decided to turn that question around and ask four editors at The Tablet what they think Pope Benedict needs to say while he is in Britain. For those who do not subscribe to The Tablet, you should. In addition to being available online to subscribers, the print edition, which is published on Thursdays, arrives in the mail every Monday here in Washington. Like NCR, The Tablet is committed to strong writing, solid reporting and incisive analysis.
Our first submission comes from Catherine Pepinster who is the editor of The Tablet.
The question: What is the most important thing Pope benedict must say or do while he is in the UK?
