Watch live: Pope’s Mass in Philadelphia before a massive crowd
It's the big event — the Pope's final Mass in Philadelphia on the Ben Franklin Parkway.
The Parkway can only hold about 250,000 people, but officials say hundreds of thousands more will line other streets of Philadelphia and watch the Mass on giant screens.
You don't need to get that close — you can watch it live, here. The Mass will be preceded by a brief parade through Philadelphia leading into the final events of the Pope's visit to the United States.
