The BBC headlined a report on the Pope’s “Thought for Today” broadcast on its Radio 4 programme on December 24th, by using some of the Pope’s own words: “God is faithful to his promises but often surprises us by how he fulfils them”. The man rightly described by the Westminster Confession of Faith as “ . . that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God” never spoke a truer word though the full meaning of his words will have escaped his attention.

‘Christmas’ – a Roman Catholic term referring to a celebratory Mass in honour of Christ – is that section of the year in which pagan activities are freely and unashamedly indulged in and all in honour of the incarnation of the Son of God.

Video of protest against the Pope.
The following video clip of the Protest against the Pope’s visit to Westminster Abbey is during the very stage when the pope drives past the protesters in his Popemobile and gets out of the car and walks into Westminster Abbey. The Protest gets a bit lively at this key moment with Protesters shouting “Anti-Christ” at the Pope and a large number of Roman Catholics who had by this stage mingled with the protest group were shouting or cheering for the pope. None of this large protest was shown on the main media news about the visit despite the protest being directly in front of the media stage.
