The Vatican has confirmed that Pope Benedict will spend an extra three days holidaying in Australia prior to World Youth Day 2008 (WYD08), but those in the know about where the Pope will be putting his feet up are staying mum.
The Catholic Weekly reports that the Pope will undertake his longest trip to Australia, spending eight days here after arriving on July 13.
WYD08 co-ordinator Bishop Anthony Fisher said the recommended venue will be a location that is serene, beautiful and suitable for the leader of the world’s Catholics.
“He will have the opportunity to see some of Australia’s beautiful flora and fauna.”
So, where will the Pope be holidaying?
Perhaps these locations are on the short list:
* the Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo
* Star City Casino
* Kings Cross
* God's waiting room (aka the NSW Central Coast)
