Benedictions: The Pope in America

EWTN, Mother Angelica’s legendary Catholic (I won’t put in any controversial modifers) TV station, scored an interview with President Bush about the Pope’s visit…No surprise. Bush and anchor Raymond Arroyo played softball–or perhaps volley ball, as Arroyo mainly set up balls for the prez to spike.
In any case, there’s much to chew over and much, ad, I would say, to raise eyebrows. Check out the transcript posted at ZENIT.
But be sure and read the outro:
Q Mr. President, final question.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, sir.
Q You said, famously, when you looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes you saw his soul.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes.
Q When you look into Benedict XVI’s eyes what do you see?
THE PRESIDENT: God.
Q Good way to end the interview.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, sir.
Q Thank you, sir. My pleasure.
