POPE'S SCHEDULE FOR HOLY LAND VISIT

    VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- The Vatican has released the schedule for Pope John Paul's trip to the Holy Land later in March. However, because of the complexity of the plans for the trip (and perhaps because of security concerns as well), the public schedule provides few details.

    The Holy Father will travel first to Jordan, arriving in Amman on March 20. On the following day he will move on to Tel Aviv, the Israeli capital, and from there take a helicopter to Jerusalem. On March 22 he will make the short trip to Bethlehem; during the following day he will remain in Jerusalem. On March 24 he will travel-- again by helicopter-- to Capernaum, and on March 25 he will celebrate the feast of the Annunciation in Nazareth.

    On March 26, the Pope will retrace his steps from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, where he will board his return flight to Rome.
