Lord Sacks: Meeting the Pope was "an epiphany"

The British Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, certainly knows his audience. Talking to the Catholic Herald about his meeting last month with the Pope, he managed to sound just a touch Christian:
“Soul touched soul across the boundaries of faith, and there was a blessed moment of healing”.
He also called the meeting "an epiphany".

Perhaps Lord Sacks was being diplomatic (and I would have actually rather liked to have overheard the conversation between these two intellectual giants), but this isn't going to make him any more popular amongst that section of his constituency who do not like the dignity of difference.

Then again, the beth din probably don't read the Catholic Herald.
