Cyberspace To Chronicle Pope Trip

Compiled From Wire Services

Internet surfers can keep track of Pope John Paul II’s visit minus the crowds, traffic and tickets.

Photos of his U.S. appearances today through Sunday and text of his speeches and Masses will be available on the World Wide Web.

Computer users with access to high-speed links to the net can even tap into live audio and video.

The U.S. Catholic Conference hopes to put text versions of the pontiff’s speeches on line as soon as they become available.

“Our purpose is to get the information out about the pope with speed and breadth and to reach a new audience of people on line,” said Msgr. Francis J. Maniscalco, spokesman for the U.S. Catholic Conference.

The Newark and Baltimore archdioceses, two stops on the pope’s journey, have “home pages” set up on the World Wide Web.
