The Pope's Pilgrmage

Host Howard Berkes talks with NPR's Sylvia Poggioli about Pope John Paul's pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Pope began the fourth day of his week long visit by saying a private Mass at the site where Jesus is believed to have celebrated the Last Supper. The pontiff visited Yad Vashem, Israel's national memorial to the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust.
