This was the image that the Pontifical Council on Social Communication used for their article. Kind of ugly, huh?The day after Pope John Paul II's beatification the Vatican is sponsoring a day conference on/for Catholic bloggers. On May 2 150 bloggers are invited to the Palazzo San Pio X for this all-day conference.
In order to get invited all one has to do is email the event host - firstname.lastname@example.org - and pray you get picked. Oh, and you need to figure out a way to fly to Rome and be put up somewhere. All costs are covered by you.
So I just sent in my own request for the conference. Maybe I can fundraise for the flight out there- if they pick me, that is.
