Pope Will Visit Ireland

MSNBC reports:
Pope John Paul II has accepted “in principle” an invitation to visit both parts of Ireland, although a trip this year appears unlikely, Catholic leaders announced Friday.

Catholic bishops last month invited the pope to come to Ireland to mark the 25th anniversary of his first visit to the country in 1979. Unlike that trip, this visit would include the British territory of Northern Ireland.

Most likely, the visit will not take place in 2004.

Hi! Very nice blog indeed, congratulations. Our Pope has been here in Switzerland in June, it was FANTASTIC. My pictures are here: Oh, might I ask you to add my site to your links? I started it last week and it's the world's first international Catholic Friendship Community. It's free, 100% Catholic, and THE place to meet Catholic friends! The address: Thanks & God bless, Ph!l!pp.
