The Pontiff's trip to Turkey

Lots of expectations, apparently, riding on this one. It's been billed as a "big" test for Vatican diplomacy, etc., etc. under the reign of B XVI, esp. in light of the cartoon violence that killed one priest in Turkey. I don't know if this is as big as the pundits are making it out to be, but I'll be sure to keep you informed of any developments. It looks to be an important trip, if not necessarily on the level of the Versailles treaty or Yalta or what have you. I guess we'll see...
