VATICAN CONFIRMS PAPAL TRIPS TO INDIA, GEORGIA

        VATICAN (CWNews.com) – The Vatican has finally issued a formal announcement of the papal voyage to India and Georgia, which will take place in November.

        Although the Pope’s plan to visit India has been public knowledge for more than a month, the Vatican had never confirmed the plans for that trip until the September 10 announcement. In that same announcement, the Vatican also confirmed the more recent story that the Holy Father will visit the former Soviet republic of Georgia on his return voyage.

        The Vatican press office said that "logistical problems" with the plans had caused the delay in making the official announcement. Although a detailed schedule of the voyage was not made public, the announcement did confirm that Pope John Paul will arrive in Indian on November 5, remain in Delhi until November 8, then fly to Georgia and return to Rome on November 9.
