During his recent historic papal visit to the U.S., Pope Benedict XVI held a mass before 40,000 people in Nationals Ballpark in Washington DC, his first papal mass in the American capital.

The pontiff met with President George W. Bush at the White House, and spoke before the United Nations, and was scheduled to hold a mass in Yankee Stadium during his visit. At the Washington DC mass, the Pope entered to a rendition of “Holy God We Praise Thy Name” and circled the grounds of the newly constructed baseball stadium in his pope mobile.
