Pauline Year

There was a press conference this morning concerning the forthcoming Pauline Year. I'm sure there will be reports in English available shortly, but one thing struck me. There was a little bit of controversy recently when it was announced that the now-defunct baptistery of St Paul outside the Walls was being converted into an 'Ecumenical Chapel'. Today offers some clarity concerning what this involves. The chapel will serve as a place of prayer for non-Catholic pilgrims who visit the Basilica, either individually or in groups. It will also be open to groups of Catholics and non-Catholics who wish to pray in common. However, it will not be used for the celebration of sacraments.

Did you see that the Vatican website has added San Paolo to the Basilicas feature? The site's only in Italian for now, but the text is pretty easy to read even for dummies like me.

Marvelous blog, always so packed with truthiness :oD

Is there any way for those of us who have no Italian to read the Vatican News Bulletins eventually?
Is there an English language page that my interneptitude keeps me from finding?
