Pope wants to meet bloggers of all nations on 2 May, 2011

This Pope is pop! What about going to Vatican and have a chat representatives of the catholic church? They are asking bloggers to attend a meeting next 2, May at in Rome:
"A meeting for bloggers will take place in Rome on the afternoon of Monday 2 May 2011. The aim of the meeting, which is being organised by the Pontifical Councils for Culture and Social Communications, is to allow for a dialogue between bloggers and Church representatives, to listen to the experiences of those who are actively involved in this arena, and to achieve a greater understanding of the needs of that community. The meeting will also allow for a presentation of some of the initiatives to engage with new media practitioners being taken by the Church, both in Rome and at the local level....." "...The meeting is taking place on the day after the Beatification of Pope John Paul II in order to take advantage of the likely presence in Rome of many bloggers. The invitation is open to all, but bloggers who wish to attend need to apply by emailing and sending a link to their blog. As space is limited to 150 seats and there is a desire to have a representation of the entire blogosphere, entrance passes and further details will be distributed with a view to the diversity of language and geography, typology of blogs (institutional or private, multivoice or personal), subjects of blogs, and timeliness of request."

I would attend if it was in Vatican because I guess the catholic church is the only religion that has a state of it's own with a library that can only lend book to the Pope and some interesting characteristics. Since the blogger meeting will be in Rome I will think about it. This Pope is pop!
