Pope Benedict quotes Chesterton

1dayin7 (Blogging the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales) has pointed out in the combox that the "writer" quoted by Pope Benedict as saying "angels can fly because they don't take themselves too seriously" was G K Chesterton. A Pope who can quote Chesterton off the cuff in an interview - that is very encouraging.

(Many thanks indeed to 1dayin7 for that observation.)
