Pope to Latin America?

This seems like the right story to post on a Sunday:

Pope Benedict XVI is expected to announce by the end of this year whether he will make a visit to Latin America in 2007, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez of Honduras told AFP.

"The Holy Father will probably decide before the end of the year if he will accept the invitation of Latin American bishops to hold the Latin American Episcopal Conference in a country of our region and not in Rome," Cardinal Rodriguez said.

The conference was originally due to be held in Rome in February 2007, but the head of the Latin American Episcopal Commission, Chilean Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz of Santiago, wrote to Pope Benedict asking him to switch the venue to its home continent.
