Pope John Paul the Second is expected to trave to Spain in October this year. If the tour takes place, it will be the first ever Papal visit to one of Europe's largest traditionally Catholic countries. But, recently the Pope took time off from his duties to view some light entertainment.
SYNOPSIS: Under the watchful eye of the Vatican's Swiss Guards, Pope John Paul held his first general audience since his visit to Central America. A special performance by an Italian circus troupe turned it into a spectacular entertainment.
For the fifty-eight year old Polish Pontiff, who was elected three months ago, it was a chance to relax after his gruelling overseas journey.
One Australian magazine named the Pope as a the most popular television personality of 1978 -- and that was before he showed publicly his appreciation for catchy tunes.
