Apparently talks about allowing RC Holy Mass in Saudia are about to be concluded,an agreement will be signed soon in Riyad between Saudi Arabia and the Vatican which will allow RC to celebrate mass there.

Today,the last day of the US trip by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI,and Mass at the Yankee stadium is prepared,what can you say on these last few days?It was about the unexpected,as in the unexpected actions and words of comfort and understanding,healing and reconcilliation.

The visit,no doubt,goes to book as a hugely successfull one.

Must say I was impressed once again by HH.

As a Catholic I am thrilled by His Holiness first visit to American soil as Pontiff. I think it surprised many people. He is not grumpy. He is not unpleasant. He is a warm and caring Shepherd and a brilliant one to boot.

I understand that Bill Maher and Lou Dobbs(CNN) had very nasty things to say about him but what do you expect-especially from Maher.

Pope Benedict did not put one foot wrong on this visit and for the first time he seems to have come out from under the shadow of the late great John Paul II.

He came, he saw, he conquered. Viva il Papa!

What did Lou Dobbs say? If I were to guess, it would be because His Holiness spoke in Spanish.

I don't know specifically what Mr Dobbs had to say beyond the fact that it was very negative. I was listening to the President of the Catholic League complain about it on the Catholic TV network.

Bill Maher went say far as to call His Holiness a Nazi and the Roman Catholic Church a "sex abusing cult".

His Holiness was too young in Nazi-times to make a concious decision for or against the Nazis, he was routinely organised in Nazi youth organisations like all others kids his age but he was too young to go against it.

Of course you are right. But secular humanists like Bill Maher don't want to hear that. He hates the Catholic Church so without bothering to check his facts he spouts vitriol.

The Catholic League demanded an apology but I don't know if it was received.

Bill Maher doesn't say that because he's a "secular humanist," he says it because he's Bill Maher.

Why aren't the excommunications being reinstated? This kind of dents the infalability issue doesn't it?

For Catholics, the Pope is infallible only when he speaks ex cathedra (very rarely).
