Here are my two favorite two lines taken from the Daily Mail as the Papal visit to England came to an end. I admit that I feared the worst as there was so much negative publicity prior to the visit, with predictions of every sort of confrontation and trouble, but as the article makes clear that the faith (once again!) triumphed over the malevolence of its opponents.
"The popularity of his visit confounded opponents who predicted thin congregations and empty parks." & "By last night the protesters appeared defeated, with celebrity objectors virtually silent and demonstrations against the visit few and muted."
