Pope Benedict XVI visited Regensburg, Germany Last September 12, 2006. I was there. That was a great experience celebrating the holy mass with the Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church. Can you imagine hundreds of thousands of people gathered together in order to attend and to witness this Holy Celebration of the mass.
