The Pope's first public event will kick off on October 4th in the town of Loreto. The Pope will celebrate Mass, to mark 50 years since John XXIII traveled there to pray so that the Second Vatican Council would be successful.

Then on October 7th, the Pope will celebrate Mass in St. Peter's Square to welcome the Synod on the New Evangelization. During that Mass he will also name two new doctors of the Church: Hildegard of Bingen and Juan de Ávila.

The Synod will last throughout October. The Pope has invited special speakers like, main Orthodox leader, Patriarch Bartholomew I and Anglican Primate, Rowan Williams.

On October 11th, the Pope will inaugurate the Year of Faith with a Mass in St. Peter's Square. The event actually coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. In fact several of those who took part in the Council in the 60's will be there to celebrate.

On Sunday 21, the Pope will canonize seven new saints: Giacomo Berthieu, Pedro Calungsod, Giovanni Battista Piamarta, Carmen Sallés, Marianne Cope, Catherine Tekakwitha and Anna Schäffer.

The following Sunday October 28, Benedict XVI will celebrate a Mass in St. Peter's Square to mark the end of the Bishop's Synod.

It will be a month of non-stop work for the 85 year old Pope.
