Vatican Blogger Meeting Agenda


A preliminary agenda has been posted for the upcoming Vatican Blogger Meeting. The events include the following:

15.30 Registration
16.00 A Word of Welcome: His Eminence Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President, PCC
Panel I (speakers to be announced)
17.30 Pause
18.00 Panel II (speakers to be announced)
19.15 Conclusions: His Excellency Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, President, PCSC

The information on the Pontifical Council site indicates that wifi will be available, so I’ll be doing my very best to keep you posted from the event – I haven’t done the math in my head yet about the time difference and what that will translate into for those hoping to experience a bit of the event “live” in the US. I did, however, note that the day gets started a bit later in the afternoon, which is probably a good thing for those of us who will be celebrating Pope John Paul II’s beatification late into the night on Sunday.

As I anticipate my trip, I’m wondering what some of the “must see” items in and around the Vatican for my two unscheduled days in Rome. If you were able to visit, what would you not want to miss?
