Pope Benedict XVI will be visiting Poland from May 25-28, 2006, and I will try to post as often as I can as the Holy Father makes this journey to Poland. Poland's TVP public broadcaster has promised to ban all TV ads that contain any erotic or violent scenes during the Pope's visit. Pope Benedict XVI is calling this trip a journey of remembrance for his predecessor, Pope John Paul II.

The Holy Father's schedule:
May 25:
May 26:
May 27:
May 28:

To watch Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Poland, you can view the events on Poland's TVP public broadcaster. Although it's all in Polish, you can still see the papal events.

Information on the Holy Father's journey along with his speeches are available on the Vatican's website.

If only it lasted longer than just the Pope's visit.
