New York, New York (NBC) —
Matt Lauer and Al Roker report for Today Thursday morning from the Vatican in Rome.
The broadcast will include a rare behind-the-scenes view of Pope Benedict XVI, a conversation with Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan and a visit to Pope John Paul II's tomb.
Archbishop Dolan, president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, is also a member of a new Vatican council aimed at promoting the church in an increasingly secular world. The council met in Rome this past weekend.
