A Duluth priest is a big collector of papal memorabilia and his items are getting some big attention.

The Global Catholic Television Network, known as EWTN, was in Duluth filming a series on papal history. Father Richard Kunst is one of the hosts and his collection is on display. Kunst has many items dating back centuries.

A couple of the episodes will focus on items from John Paul II and John XXIII. Both will be canonized this April.

"I love the papacy and I love everything it represents," Kunst said. "My hope is to make this a contagious thing for other people, to see these things and see there's tangible connections to the popes."

Two episodes will air at the end of April. Five more episodes will air at a later date. This is the second time EWTN has been in Duluth.
