My date with His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI tomorrow at Yankee Stadium

Unbelievable but true, but yes, we got tickets to hear mass tomorrow at Yankee Stadium with His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.  My friend Jackie and I are all excited!  More details are available here and although this is not an official site, I am reprinting the schedule here for the benefit of others who are going:

9:00 a.m. – Gates Open
12:00 noon – All Gates close
12:00 noon – “Concert of Hope” begins - 
              *featuring Harry Connick, Jr., Marcello Giordano, Stephanie Mills, Jose Feliciano, and Dana.
2:00 p.m. – “Concert of Hope” concludes
2:10 p.m. Holy Father travels around the stadium in the Popemobile
2:20 p.m. Procession begins
2:30 p.m. Celebration of the Mass begins
5:00 p.m. Mass Concludes
5:30 p.m. Pope Benedict XVI leaves stadium
5:45 p.m. Guests leave stadium


Once in the stadium, ticket holders will not be permitted to leave and re-enter. No one will be admitted after 12:00 noon, as the Secret Service will close access two hours prior to the Pope’s arrival.

Visitors will not be allowed to bring metal, plastic, or glass containers into the stadium, nor backpacks, strollers, totes, large bags, food, beverages, video cameras, or tripods. Diaper bags will be permitted. Still cameras are permitted.
