The Vatican declared Pope Benedict XVI's four-day visit to Britain a "great success," upon the pontiff's departure from the UK on Sunday. The statement noted that the pontiff was able to reach out to a nation wary of his message and angry at his church's sex abuse scandal.

Earlier Sunday, Benedict praised British heroics against the Nazis to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

"For me, as one who lived and suffered through the dark days of the Nazi regime in Germany, it is deeply moving to be here with you on this occasion and to recall how many of your fellow citizens sacrificed their lives, courageously resisting the forces of that evil ideology," Benedict told the crowd.
