Pope, Rowan Meet for . . . 20 Minutes? UPDATED

I am not yet able to confirm Damian Thompson’s report that the long awaited meeting between the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Pope lasted only 20 minutes. And I do find that hard to believe.

But if they did indeed have such a brief meeting, that [Anglican understatement alert] does not reflect well on RC-Anglican relations.

The Guardian’s report also has the meeting pegged at 20 minutes.

Yup, hard to believe that anybody could tolerate Rowan's presence for 20 minutes.

Looks like it took place in the Pope's comfy study. If I were the Pope, I'd have received him in a very cold room with just one chair in it.
