Pope-alooza Tour 2008...

...is coming to Yankee Stadium.

As CBS 2 HD first reported in April, Pope Benedict XVI will visit New York City during his first trip to the United States, and plans for the visit include a stop at ground zero before leading a public Mass at Yankee Stadium.

Archbishop Pietro Sambi told the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Monday that Benedict will travel to Washington and New York from April 15-20.

Can the Fly get us tix? Fly have you ever seen JPII when he came to the USA?

During his trip maybe B16 will find time to make a quick trip to St Louis and straighten out these people.

A controversial ceremony took place in Missouri as two women are ordained as Roman Catholic priests over the weekend.

Rose Marie Hudson and Elsie McGrath were ordained Sunday in a ceremony at a St. Louis synagogue. They are part of the Roman Catholic Women Priests movement, which is independent from the Roman Catholic Church.

And not everyone in the church is celebrating. The women were warned they would be excommunicated if they went ahead with the ceremony. But they're moving forward with no regrets.

"It's never going to change if we just walk away, you know? They wouldn't care whatsoever if we walked away," said McGrath.

The Roman Catholic Women Priests movement has ordained more than 60 women in the U.S. and Europe.
