Vatican Demands Retraction
When the British papers report on Church news, it seems to be about a 50/50 proposition that the reporting will be anywhere near accurate. In this case - they struck out.
Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office, asked for “an immediate and unambiguous denial” of a “completely untrue” April 20 London Times article. According to the article, Pope Benedict intended to give Prince Charles a facsimile of the 1530 English request for King Henry VIII’s annulment from Catherine of Aragon. Richard Owen of the Times wrote a revised story that appeared in the April 21 edition.
