Do you hear what I hear?

The famous Whitechapel Bell Foundry has produced its first bell to bear the name of Pope Benedict XVI. It weighs 70kgs [154 pounds for those in the States] and also has the words "Come ring out our joy to the Lord" inscribed upon it.

Ironically, the foundry was established in 1570 during the reign of Elizabeth I. No word on whether she rolled over in her grave at the first sounding of the bell.
