Pope Francis touched down in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday and has already been making strides in the political world. The Papal three-city tour is the pope's first visit to the United States. His first major event will be a 4:15 p.m. EDT Mass of Canonization of Junipero Serra at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Wednesday.

Francis' packed Wednesday schedule kicked off with a welcoming ceremony held at the White House with President Barack Obama at 9:15 a.m. EDT. The Papal Parade began shortly after at 11:00 a.m. at the nearby National Mall. The pope then held a midday prayer at the downtown St. Mathews Cathedral.
