Scores of Mainers were at Yankee Stadium Sunday, but they weren’t there to catch a baseball game.
They were at the ballpark to attend a public Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI on the final day of his six-day visit to the U.S.
One hundred people from Maine were given tickets to the event on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sheila and Peter Sullivan of Bridgton are among the Maine residents who were going to the service. Sheila Sullivan calls the pope’s visit a wonderful opportunity to be close to ":the holiest man on Earth.":
