Vatican Radio SW specials?

** VATICAN [and non]. VR must have had special SW broadcasts covering the popal visit to Cuba, but I never ran across any; who needed them with extensive coverage on WEWN, Radio Martí, and even RHC, not to mention several cable TV networx?

As linked from Hitlist, 
VR is supposed to have a particular page with times and SW frequencies for specials,
but as of 1440 UT Sept 22, it`s blank! 

We do find however, an extensive schedule of the imminent ``Apostolic Journey to the USA`` with linx for online coverage of each event in several languages:
This runs thru Sept 28. i buttons lead to video players not enabled. 

Sept 22 at 1343 UT, I came across Vatican Bells ringing on 9610, which is the Greenville relay frequency for VR in Spanish at 1130-1200, violating Separation of Church and State --- so it may well be that more specials are planned on this or other GB frequencies, as well as direct from SMG, but what and when are they? Recheck at 1354, 9610 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
