Pope Benedict arrives in Britain in September 2010. In the five years since his election, he has travelled widely, spoken to millions and written in depth on a vast range of subjects: His aim, to make God truly known and loved. Despite gloomy predictions on this new papacy, Benedict has surprised everyone, accomplishing far more than was expected, in his own way. One of the most intellectual Popes in history, Benedict XVI understands that Christianity is a matter of the heart. This booklets confirms his view: "In all humility we will do what we can, and in all humility we will entrust the rest to the Lord. It is God who governs the world, not we. We offer him our service only to the extent that we can, and for as long as he grants us the strength."
