I love my SIRIUS satellite radio. Nothing’s better than commercial-free music all day long for whatever musical mood I’m in at any particular moment.

One channel I turn to on occasion is The Catholic Channel (channel 159), a partnership between SIRIUS and the Archdiocese of New York.

In February SIRIUS issued a press release of its plans for coverage of the papal visit to the United States April 15-20.

Those who subscribe to SIRIUS can tune into The Catholic Channel for what it is terming “the flagship for coverage of the first visit to the U.S. by a pope since 1999, providing hourly updates with the latest news and information on the pope’s activities during his visit, live coverage of all the major events, and more.”

Also according to the press release, SIRIUS, in addition to The Catholic Channel coverage, will dedicate multiple channels to the pope’s visit, to provide listeners with simultaneous access to papal events, commentary and rare archival recordings of Masses and speeches from historic papal visits — which will include, among others, Pope John Paul II’s 1995 address to the United Nations General Assembly.
