When Pope Benedict XVI visits Washington in April he will make two trips through Washington in his popemobile.
The Washington Archdiocese says the decision means people who can't get to the pope's Mass at the new Washington Nationals ballpark will be able to see him travel the streets in his specially-designed vehicle. The original itinerary did not call for the pope to make any public appearances other than the Mass, but the archdiocese says the Vatican has changed its mind.
The routes for the popemobile trips have not been finalized. The Mass is scheduled for April 17.
