Image 1 of 26

In his second full day here in the United States, Pope Francis made a grand entrance and visited parishioners at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

Arriving first in his Fiat then traveling down the streets in an open air 'pope-mobile' Jeep, the Pontiff greeted thousands of cheering and adoring fans.

The afternoon mass was expected to draw tens of thousands. Watch it live here: https://youtu.be/hEJDTqVQhe0
