New British Ambassador to the Holy See

The Holy Father today welcomed His Excellency Mr Nigel Marcus Baker as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Holy See.

In the course of his address the Holy Father sent his greetings to Her Majesty the Queen, her government and to all of us.

I was glad to see that the Holy Father lent his support to my interpretation of the recent riots ;-)
As you pointed out in your speech, your Government wishes to employ policies that are based on enduring values that cannot be simply expressed in legal terms. This is especially important in the light of events in England this summer. When policies do not presume or promote objective values, the resulting moral relativism, instead of leading to a society that is free, fair, just and compassionate, tends instead to produce frustration, despair, selfishness and a disregard for the life and liberty of others.
