Pope Benedict XVI’s liturgical celebrations of Holy Week and Easter will be broadcast live on the internet.
Internet users will have access to live broadcasts from St. Peter’s Square, pictures and other on-line news reports. They can choose to listen to live audio commentaries in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
The broadcasts are a multimedia initiative of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, launched in May to bring Pope Benedict’s message to young people.
The broadcasts were brought about by Pope2You, http://www.pope2you.net, and H2oNews, http://www.h2onews.org, a Catholic multimedia news agency which is collaborating with the Vatican Television Centre and the Holy See’s internet service.
