Pope Embarks on Weeklong U.S. Visit


Pope Benedict XVI travels from Rome to Washington to begin his first papal pilgrimage to the U.S. on Tuesday. Reporters Sewell Chan and Michael McGough discuss the preparations for the pontiff's visit — from the logistics of holding mass in Yankee stadium, to what the pope will wear during his trip.

McGough's article "Papal Dress Code" appeared April 6 in The Los Angeles Times. Chan has been covering the pope's travels for The New York Times.
