LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - An exhibit of artifacts and memorabilia belonging to Pope John Paul II will travel to St. Louis and Washington D.C. after it leaves West Texas.
No dates have been finalized for the two stops after the show leaves Lubbock at the end of May.
John Paul II's coat of arms, which is made up of 21 different types of wood, and a portrait of him in later years waving his right hand will be part of the exhibit. They were unveiled Thursday at a news conference in Lubbock announcing details of the exhibit, called "I Have Come to You Again."
The exhibit, which opens March 15 in Lubbock, will include more than 130 items, including historic documents, personal belongings, gifts and artwork John Paul collected.
