It was awesome to hear Pope Benedict celebrate the Catholic Mass in English in the Washington Nationals' Baseball Stadium last Thursday. Even teenagers were totally silent as they watched the Holy Father on T.V. Here is the FOX News text of his Homily and his itinerary.

I am really happy that Pope Benedict, nicknamed "the German Shepherd," will be coming to the sacred ground at the World Trade Center today to comfort us and to help us to heal.

Pope Benedict will lead a private service for some family members of the victims of the 9-11 attacks. This service begins at 9:30 AM.

At 2:30 in the afternoon, the Pope will celebrate mass at Yankee Stadium [text of Homily]. Here is the Pope's schedule, according to WCBSTV.

Here is the WCBSTV news story with very extensive video about the Pope's visit to America and information about his visit to Ground Zero:

On Sunday, the final day of his trip, Pope Benedict XVI will visit Ground Zero to honor those who died on 9/11. Family members of several victims will join the pope for the private service.

Praying and blessing the sacred ground at the World Trade Center site is being called the 'emotional high point' of the pontiff's visit to the United Sates.

Papal flags and new white canopies mark the spot where the pope will enter Ground Zero to stand in solidarity with the family members of 9/11 victims, survivors of the attack and first responders.
