Spend Some Time with the Pope


Thanks to my friends at CatholicTV for sharing the following news about a special program that will air tomorrow, January 12 at 9:00 pm ET.  Enjoy!


CatholicTV Network Gives Viewers Exclusive Vatican Access with Never Before Seen Footage of Pope Benedict’s Daily Life
WATERTOWN, MA – (January 3, 2011)  CATHOLICTV NETWORK, the nation’s leader in family-positive religious programming, is going inside the walls of the Vatican, into Pope Benedict XVI’s private residence and capturing intimate details of his daily life.

This must-see program airs as a special one-hour edition of House+Home on January 12, 2011 at 9:00 PM (Eastern).  See a preview right now via the following link ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX6Fh0J2GS4)

Join Father Robert Reed as he serves as a tour guide on the ultimate insider excursion. Stand feet away as The Holy Father vests and celebrates private morning Mass, sense the joy as he creates new bishops for the Church, sit at the table in the pope’s private dining room, accompany the pope as he meets with Heads of State, be escorted by Swiss guards inside restricted areas and catch the pope’s private moments right before his most public encounters.

Each year, millions of people jam St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus blessing of Pope Benedict. But none of them have ever been inside the pope’s private study the minutes before he steps up to his study window to address the masses.

Until now.

Be a part of this unique moment – the energy, the excitement and Pope Benedict’s surprising calm.

“There was so much unbelievable footage, the show could easily be twice as long. We crammed the most riveting, impactful and impressive moments in this fast-paced hour,” said Reed. “It is a true honor for us at the CatholicTV Network to be able to share the Pope’s daily life with our audience. Oftentimes, a show is just titled ‘a special,’ this one really is.”

This House+Home special event kicks off a whole month focused on Rome. From January 1 to January 31, CatholicTV Network debuts Viaggio a Roma, a thirty-part original series on ancient and Christian Rome.

The show will be available on CatholicTV (check local listings), CatholicTV.com and on the CatholicTV app for iPhone and iPad.
