The Vatican Pope Benedict XVI Rome live on You Tube

The Vatican have caught up with the modern times. The Pope Benedict XVI , has launced a You tube video channel.

By 1630 GMT, http://it.youtube.com/vatican had drawn a total of 14,606 views and signed up just 528 subscribers to what the Holy See describes as “the Catholic Church’s position regarding the principal issues of the world today.”
The channel, which was to be updated regularly with daily offerings on the the main activities of the pontiff and other Vatican events, lagged way down the list of popular YouTube videos.
The Holy See already runs a website, TV channel, and radio station, but the deal with YouTube owner Google was aimed to “secure the Pope’s presence on the web,” Vatican newspaper Osservatore Romano said Thursday.

Pope Benedict XVI’s launch of a Vatican channel on global video-sharing website YouTube fell on slightly deaf ears today Friday 23rd January 2009.
