.- Pope Benedict XVI will travel to the city of Brescia in northern Italy on November 8 to preside at the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the death of Pope Paul VI.
The Pontiff will inaugurate the “Paul VI Center” at Brescia, dedicated to preserving the late-Pope's writings and promoting the authentic interpretation of Vatican II. The home where Giovanni Montini (Paul VI) was born will be part of the new center.
“The visit is reason for great joy for our priests and for the entire Church in Brescia,” said Bishop Luciano Monari.
Pope Paul VI named Joseph Ratzinger the Archbishop of Munich on March 24, 1977, and then made him a cardinal on May 28 of the same year. Pope Paul VI died on August 6, 1978.
