S+L AT THE PAPAL VISIT: At Nationals Stadium, Waiting for Mass to Begin

April 17, 2008
I'm sending this report from the NBC press box overlooking several hundred concelebrants in Washington's Nationals Stadium. The NBC cameras will be filming a live interview with me for CBC Newsworld at 10:15am ET.
Though leaving the press corps feels risky given last night's bus debacle, secret service has been helpful. On the way upstairs, my escort kindly alerted me to the congressmen we passed in the hallway, as well as the presence of Chief Justice John Roberts in our elevator.
A gospel choir is now singing as we wait for the Mass to begin.
