Pope's Body
Question from Ronito on 4/2/2005:
United States

Dear EWTN, My name is Ronito, 13 years old. I am planning a trip to Rome to see the body of Pope John Paul II. Howeve, I have a question, is it possible for me to see his body? Would there be any cost? I look forward for your reply. God bless the Pontiff. Ronito

Answered on 4/2/2005:

His body will "lie in state" this coming week until the funeral, probably Thursday. After that, it will likely be entombed under St. Peter's where many popes are entombed. As a visitor to St. Peter's you could pray at his tomb, but not actually see his body, of course.
