Pope John Paul II is planning to recommend a major change in what may be the Catholic Church's most commonly used devotion: the Rosary. The Pope will recommend the number of "mysteries," or events in the life of Christ to be meditated upon, be increased from 15 to 20. John Ydstie talks with John Allen, Vatican Correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter.
