On eve of Benin visit, a closer look at the Pope's health

November 17, 2011
In several hours, Pope Benedict will land in the western African nation of Benin. As was the case with his 21 previous papal visits, he faces a packed schedule -- 16 events and 10 speeches over the course of 3 days. On the eve of another arduous trip, Catholic News Service examines the validity of recent reports about the 84-year-old pontiff's health.
S+L's full coverage of the Apostolic Voyage to Benin begins Friday at noon ET / 9:00am PT.
