From the AP:  The Vatican is creating a Google channel for texts, videos and news relating to the pontiff.

VATICAN CITY - The Vatican says Pope Benedict XVI is getting his own channel on Google.

It says the Vatican TV Center and Vatican Radio are collaborating with Google on the project.

The Vatican's press office said Saturday that texts and video of the pope's speeches as well as news about the pontiff would be posted directly onto the channel....

What a fine idea. I look forward to using it! EWTN covers most papal events live, but I'm not always available to see them right away.

This is a great idea. Go to the young where they are. Google is the now thing so this is a great idea for outreach!

^why is this necessary?  Why doesn't the papacy already use its existing website for streaming videos and recordings and the like?  I'm not opposed; it just seems superfluous.

Have you ever been to the Vatican website?  It's terrible and quite old-fashioned by web standards.  I get the impression that Google Video will just be getting the recordings that were already produced by Vatican TV and Radio.
