Does it have anything to do with the real Christ and His Body, the Church?It was my privilege to have the time to research some of the fundamental beliefs of the Roman Church and compare them to what God has revealed in His Owners Manual, the Bible. It was so intriguing that I wrote a book about it: Escape From Paganism. You can review it at www.escapefrompaganism.comLarry Ball

Perhaps a challenge to do the job.

But we didn’t get any pix of him wearing them!

Rowan Williams is THE Most Reverend And Right Honourable Rowan Williams < Archbishop of Canterbury.He is NOT a Mr WilliamsCourtesy goes all around .. this discourtesy indicates an attitude long gone one would hope.

If he does, they don’t seem to be on his desk. So it’s possible that he could not have read the Williams speech — even if he wanted to.Elizabeth

There’s normally an exchange of gifts like this when prominent personalities visit the pope. When he went to the Vatican, Saudi King Abdullah presented the pope with a sword (http://bit.ly/4ZPtJR). On his 2006 visit, Williams gave Benedict a crucifix. The fact that Williams gave him a copy of his speech defending women bishops this time caught my attention. But was there a hidden meaning behind the choice of an episcopal cross? An invitation to swim the Tiber? It crossed my mind, but I thought that was overinterpreting a standard gift. But it’s an interesting question…

What could be the meaning?
