Popemobile Alert!

New details are now available on where area residents who aren't going to the Nationals Park mass can catch a glimpse of Pope Benedict. According to Catholic News Service, a Vatican-affiliated news agency, there will be three popemobile opportunities in Washington -- and one in New York. The CNS report also includes more tick-tock from the Vatican on the trip than we've seen before.

Just to clarify, because we're so often misidentified: Calling Catholic News Service "a Vatican-affiliated news agency" makes about as much sense as calling The Washington Post an affiliate of whatever government it covers with its own permanent bureau. We have a three-journalist Rome bureau that covers the Vatican as an important source of news for our readers. The extensive detail found in our story -- including popemobile routes -- was available to any reporter stationed in Rome, not just to us because of any special ties to the Vatican. We are owned by the U.S. bishops conference but we are financially self-sustaining and provide our readers a professional news service unmatched in its coverage of the Catholic Church.

How can the blind see anything anywhere especially in the church. Does anyone supose the WP is guilty of the sin of pride?
