"Over the years, various British citizens have worked in Rome at university level – Sr Helen Alford, for example, teaches at the Angelicum University, and has become a notable authority on Catholic Social Teaching. Sr Helen is exceptional for obvious reasons – the vast majority of contributors to the Church in Rome are priests".

Ms. Pepinster has publish a book on the matter entitled The Keys and the Kingdom: The British and the Papacy from John Paul II to Francis, published by T & T Clark/Bloomsbury.
