VATICAN CITY, APRIL 21, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Newly elected Pope Benedict XVI already has an e-mail address.

The address which was just announced by the Holy See's Internet office is benedictxvi@vatican.va. The address in Italian is benedettoxvi@vatican.va.

Benedict XVI is following in the footsteps of his predecessor John Paul II, who, thanks to a portable computer, on Nov. 22, 2001, promulgated online the postsynodal apostolic exhortation "Ecclesia in Oceania."

John Paul II also used e-mail to receive messages from the faithful worldwide.
