All this hoopla over the Pope coming the US over the next 2 weeks! In 2004, my sister and I did some backpacking around Europe. We went to Vatican City, and apparently had just missed a Papal Mass in St. Peter's Square - we just caught a glimpse of the Popemobile driving out of the square!

Have you ever seen the Pope in person, or are you planning to see him at any of the events while he's here in the US?
