Holy Father to visit childhood home of Pope Paul VI

.- Today it was announced that Pope Benedict will make a pastoral visit on Sunday, November 8, to the northern Italian towns of Brescia and Concesio, the birthplace of Pope Paul VI.

On the morning of November 8, the Holy Father will depart from the Ciampino Airport in Rome and will arrive at 9:30 a.m. in Brescia.

Once there, he will visit the Church of Botticino Sera where he will venerate the remains of St. Arcangelo Tadini before concelebrating Mass at the Cathedral of Brescia and praying the Sunday Angelus.

St. Arcangelo Tadini was an Italian diocesan priest and founder of the Congregation of Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth.  He died in 1912 and was canonized on February 23, 2009.

The Holy Father will then meet with organizers of his pastoral visit at the Paul VI Institute before paying a visit to the house in Concesio where Pope Paul VI was born in 1897.

The Pontiff will then give a speech for the inauguration of the institute's new site as well as for the presentation of the Pope Paul VI International Prize.

Before returning to Rome that evening, the Holy Father is scheduled to visit St. Anthony's Parish, where Pope Paul VI was baptized.
