Pope Benedict XVI continues his tour of the United States on Saturday — the third anniversary of his election as pontiff. He began the day with a Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City and then spent the afternoon at a mass rally for young people in Yonkers, N.Y. His opening act? Kelly Clarkson.

Nearly 20,000 young people came to see the pontiff, who urged them to take the liturgy seriously and to have hope in Jesus.
