Fr. Lombardi: Vatican entourage calm despite possible terrorist plot
On the second day of the U.K. papal visit, Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi said things continue to go "very well." He spoke to journalists gathered at St. Mary's University College about the morning's events.
Reviewing the meeting with religious in the university chapel, the outdoor encounter with several thousand youth that had great reach across Britain and the meeting of 200 interfaith leaders, Fr. Lombardi said that the Pope is "very pleased" with how things went.
BBC had broken the story earlier in the day that five non-British citizens were arrested under suspicion of planning a terrorist act. Speculation continues to circulate on whether or not the Pope was the object of their plans.
