Pope News, Pictures, and Videos
“Dear Friends, I just launched News.va. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI,” the Pope, 84, wrote on the Vatican’s Twitter account.
The Vatican’s new site features news in Italian and English and plans to add other languages in the future – it also opened its own YouTube channel a few years ago to upload videos of Pope Benedict and various church events.

Pope Joins Twitter
Kelly Clarkson, the first season’s winner of American Idol, sings a rousing rendition of the hymn “Ave Maria” for Pope Benedict XVI at Saint Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, New York on Saturday.
About 25,000 young worshippers rallied for the Popemobile (and Kelly).
“I was so excited to be asked to sing for the Pope,” Kelly. “I grew up singing church music, and it’s always been a dream of mine to perform ‘Ave Maria.’ To have that dream come true on such a special occasion is truly a blessing.”
Watch the video below of Kelly belting out “Ave Maria”!
