How to See the Pope
It's too early to spread your blanket on a sidewalk along the route just yet, but here are some details of Pope Benedict's trips in the popemobile through Washington D.C. when he hits town in two weeks.
The U.S. Conference of Bishops says that the popemobile will be used for two routes -- both on Wednesday, April 16. One will happen after Benedict's meeting with President Bush (scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m.). The pope will travel partway back to the Papal Nunciature in Northwest D.C., where he is staying, in the popemobile. Later that afternoon, he will again travel by popemobile when he goes to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, on Michigan Avenue NE. That meeting, with U.S. bishops, starts at 5:30 p.m.
For security reasons, the exact route won't be unveiled until shortly before the pope arrives. So stay tuned.
