A German teen magazine has been giving away posters of Pope Benedict XVI ahead of his visit to Cologne on Thursday.
Pope Benedict's visit to Cologne is much anticipated
Bravo, which normally gives away posters of pop stars such as Britney Spears, said the special-edition prints had been well received by its readers.
"No-one expected a poster like this in Bravo magazine but people love it," the editor told BBC News website.
The Pope is to attend the World Youth Day Festival and will lead a mass for as many as 800,000 young people.
The decision to include Pope Benedict instead of a pop band is momentous for Bravo, which reports a readership of 1.8m.
"We wanted to do something special for this German pope," said Tom Junkersdorf, editor-in-chief of Bravo.
"He's a big star in Germany and people want to see him and hear what he's going to say."
The poster is larger than those normally given away by Bravo and depicts a smiling and waving Pope Benedict under the heading "Bravo Bene".
The poster has proved so popular that some people are even attempting to sell their copies on an internet auction site.
