Benedict's Mass at St. Patrick's will be New York's "First"

Pope Benedict's mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral will be a "first" for the New York Archdiocese, says Cardinal Egan. New York One reports:

This will be the first mass ever celebrated by a pope in Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Now some of your audience is going to say what about Pope John Paul, or Pope Paul the VI? They did not ever celebrate mass in the cathedral so this is a first, and NY1 knows it first."
