.- In addition to his upcoming visits to Loreto and Austria, Pope Benedict XVI will also visit the city of Naples in southern Italy in October.

The archbishop of Naples, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, announced the Pope would visit the city on October 21 on the occasion of the “Meeting of Religions.”

The Pope will arrive by helicopter at 9:30am and will be driven to central Naples where he will celebrate a Mass with all of the bishops from the Italian region of Campania.

After praying the Angelus, he will visit the seminary in Naples, where he will have lunch with the leaders of the various religions attending the international meeting.

In the afternoon, the Holy Father will go to the Cathedral of Naples for a private event, which will include a time of prayer in the chapel of St. Januarius, where the relics of the saint are venerated.

The Pope will return to the Vatican by helicopter.
