The Vatican is soon to have its own space on the video sharing site YouTube.
The Vatican's press office said that texts and video of the Pope's speeches as well as news about the pontiff will be posted directly onto the channel. More information will be issued next week.
The initiative will involve Google, the Vatican Television Centre and Vatican Radio.
The Vatican has always kept abreast of modern technology. It launched its website: www.vatican.va nearly 14 years ago.
