Pope Benedict XVI will travel to Savona and Genoa on May 17-18, for a meeting with youth and a visit to the shrine of the Madonna della Guardia, Vatican Radio reports.
On June 14-15 the Pontiff will visit Brindisi and Santa Maria di Leuca (Apulia). And on September 7, the Pope will travel to Cagliari, in Sardinia, for a visit to the Marian shrine there.
The Holy Father also has plans for 3 trips outside Italy in 2008: to the US in April, with stops in New York and Washington; to Australia in July for World Youth Day; and to France, at an unspecified date, for the 150th anniversary of the Virgin Mary's appearances at Lourdes. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
