Worship on grand scale

The Pope In America

April 18, 2008

Thousands jammed Nationals Park in Washington yesterday for the first outdoor Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI during his six-day visit to the United States. Above, Sister Leticia M.C. (left) of the Missionaries of Charity in the Bronx, N.Y., and Sister Maria Christine of the Sisters of the Poor in Catonsville watch the activity before the service. The sports arena was redecorated into a sort of sunny cathedral for the occasion.
