Welcome back for another weekly edition of Vatican Connections
. Since our last episode, a lot of interesting headlines have come from the Vatican.
Here are some of the stories that we bring to you on tonight’s show.
- The holy stairs of the Scala Sancta have been exposed for the first time in 300 years, and the team working on the project were amazed at what they found.
- The pope spent all of last week in a Lenten retreat of prayer and fasting. We have some behind-the-scenes images from that event.
- A former close adviser to Pope Francis is sentenced to a six-year prison term but will appeal. We have some details on what his legal team are planning.
- And this week in the history of the Vatican: It was 20 years ago on March 17th that Vatican Radio and Sony released the first-ever papal music video.
All that and more on this week's Vatican Connections
