After they concluded their private discussions, the archbishop presented his entourage to the pope, including the Rt. Rev. Christopher Hill, Bishop of Guildford. Walter Cardinal Kasper joined them too, together with Msgr. Mark Langham, who is the Vatican’s desk officer for relations with the Anglican Communion. Then, in what many interpreted as a significant and highly symbolic gesture, Pope Benedict gave the Archbishop of Canterbury a gold pectoral cross. Afterward, Archbishop Williams had a private lunch with the Father General of the Jesuits, Adolfo Nicolas, before returning to London.
