VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI will answer people’s questions about Jesus Christ in an unusual Good Friday broadcast on the Italian state television network.
A Sua Immagine (In his Image), a Catholic perspectives show that normally airs on Sundays on RaiUno, will present an 80-minute programme on April 22 featuring a pre-recorded interview with the pope.
The Vatican Television Centre will film the pope from the Apostolic Palace a few days before Good Friday as he answers three questions presented to him beforehand. The questions will be based on what people send by e-mail to the RAI television show’s website.
The show’s host, Rosario Carello, told Vatican Radio that they will read every e-mail sent in and then make a selection of the most common inquiries, as well as the most interesting questions, including ones that could “open a stronger debate”. - CNS
