Pope Benedict is visiting Czech Republic

Pope Benedict XVI is visiting the Czech Republic Sept. 26-28, traveling to Prague, Brno, and Stará Boleslav. It's the pope's first visit to the country and his second to a former Soviet satellite state, after Poland in 2006.

John Allen will be in the Czech Republic covering the trip. Allen's "curtain-raiser" for the trip is here: The German shepherd bids farewell to a 'wolf in winter'.

Watch the NCR Today group blog pages through the weekend for more of Allen's reports.
