Let's be frank.....

Found over at Catholic Mom of 10 -
Mr Blair, joined by his wife Cherie, presented Benedict with a framed set of three antique pictures of Cardinal Newman, who converted in 1845 after more than 20 years in the Church of England clergy and is now a candidate for sainthood. Mrs Blair said: "I believe you are very familiar with him and he is on the journey to sainthood." To which the Pope responded: "Yes, yes, although it is taking some time - miracles are hard to come by in Britain."

This was part of an article titled "Tony Blair given 'a stern lecture'" which you can find here.
