Britain's Queen Elizabeth II meets with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday, April 3. Over the years, she has also met many of his papal predecessors. The private audience with Pope Francis was the first meeting between the 87-year-old queen, who is Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and Pope Francis, head of the Roman Catholic Church. According to Vatican Radio, Thursday's audience marked the queen's seventh encounter with a pontiff and the fifth different pope she has met. Besides trips to Rome, she also welcomed Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI, now Pope Emeritus, on their respective visits to Britain. Her first papal encounter was with Pope Pius in 1951, the year before she ascended the throne, the broadcaster said. Britain's ambassador to the Holy See, Nigel Baker, told Vatican Radio the Queen had decided to take advantage of the rescheduled trip to meet Pope Francis. "If you look back in terms of Queen Elizabeth's reign, it is extraordinary how far the relationship between Britain and the Holy See, and between the Anglican Church and the Catholic Church, has developed since 1952 when she became queen," he said. A key aspect of that has been her several encounters with different popes over the years, Baker said.

There is something prophetic about this picture that makes it especially all the more enchanting. Ecumenism is a reality; a yearning that all true Christians are striving for. I pray that I may live to see this reality come to fruition.

Lets be proud Christians, proud of our Faith and Church. Display the image and reason for our faith to all humankind. We should be proud to wear and display our faith to the world. No more should we be told to hide our faith behind closed doors, to leave it behind when we're at work or socializing. We should be proud Christians, happy Christians, rejoicing in our faith, happy to share it with the curious and with our silent brothers and sisters in the hope that it will rekindle their lost love of Our Savior Jesus Christ and his Church. Thank you.
