Archbishop of Westminster urges Catholics to be more visible

Catholics are being urged to make themselves more visible by making the sign of the cross and saying "God bless you" more often.

The guidance comes in a letter from the Archbishop of Westminster, the Most Rev Vincent Nichols, to be read out at Westminster Cathedral this weekend.

He said the Pope's recent visit to Britain had brought "such joy". He added: "Even the simple step of more regularly using the greeting 'God bless you', gently and naturally, would make a difference to the tone we set in our daily lives as would the more frequent use of the sign of the cross."
