The pope said no but the leader of the world's Anglicans was happy to meet Russell Crowe, star of watery Biblical epic "Noah."
The Church of England's governing body on Tuesday narrowly blocked a move to permit women to serve as bishops, leaving the church facing more years of contentious debate.
The next archbishop of Canterbury will be officially introduced Friday, the British government said, and the expectation is that the new leader of the world's 77 million Anglicans will be former oil company executive Justin Welby, the bishop of Durham for the past year.
Along with his visits, Welby spoke to a larger audience in Britain via that country's Radio Times magazine, where the Anglican primate argued for more faith-based programming on television and radio: "At a time when some argue that faith and religious life should be kept behind closed doors, it is reassuring that broadcasters still invest in imaginative, high-quality religious programming, especially during Christian festivals such as Easter and Christmas," he wrote. "But I believe passionately that religious broadcasting is not just for Easter or Christmas: its presence is vital the whole year round."
"The show amusingly depicts some of the challenges facing clergy up and down the country. But while it’s great entertainment, it doesn’t truly tell the whole story. I have a friend who runs a growing church in Reading city centre, filled with young people with no church background; I have another friend who has had to plant two new churches because his congregation is bursting at the seams," Welby noted.
