'Today' Show Went to the Vatican!

Hello, Coffee Talkers!

Happy Ascension Thursday, y'all! (Here in the United States, most dioceses transfer the Solemnity of the Ascension to Sunday, so don't worry if you thought you missed out on the festivities of the day!)

Many of you may have already heard that the 'Today' show went to the Vatican! The hosts of the show were given a guided tour of Rome and Vatican City by Archbishop Timothy Dolan (President of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops), and they also featured a 3-minute 'day-in-the-life' video montage for Pope Benedict XVI! Pretty cool.

There are a bunch of neat video clips on the msnbc website, and I'll share the link to the one that shows a little bit of a day in the life of the Pope. [And a note for all concerned parties: Matt Lauer mistakenly says in the clip that the Pope's name used to be John Ratzinger, but it was, indeed, JOSEPH Ratzinger. I'm sure that, by now, Lauer has been corrected for the error at least 3 million times, and will not forget the name in the future.] After you watch the first video, you can see the others by staying on the site. Enjoy!

Peace and all good,
