Vatican City, February 20 - The Vatican Television
Centre (CTV) has said virtually every moment of Pope Benedict
XVI's last day as pontiff will be recorded for posterity.
Benedict will become the first pope in over seven centuries
to voluntarily step down as the head of the Catholic Church on
February 28 and for the first time cameras will be able to
capture a moment of such historic importance.
The highlight will be when the 85-year-old German, who says
he no longer has the physical and mental strength to lead the
world's 1.2 billion Catholics, leaves the Vatican by helicopter
to take up temporary residence at the pontifical summer
residence at Castel Gandolfo near Rome.
"The departure will be a historic event," said Mons.
Edoardo Maria Vigano', CTV's director.
Vigano' said the details of precisely how much of the day
would be recorded without invading too much Benedict's privacy
had not yet been settled.
Benedict will move back to a monastery inside the Vatican
when renovation work is complete in a few months.
