As a Catholic I found the Pope’s visit to the UK very inspirational. I went to see the Pope in both Birmingham and London. The Pope walked right by me at the gathering in Cofton Park, Birmingham. I found this very moving and felt very lucky to be blessed by such a spiritual man.
When I was outside Westminster Cathedral I felt that it was just as special an event. A special moment was when, at the sign of peace during mass the police officers, who may be religious or not were shaking hands with the crowd.
Hopefully they had a feel for the event and may have positively questioned themselves about their beliefs or lack of. Both days were very special and strengthened my faith after now seeing two Popes. - Year 11 Student
