"We invited the American cardinals to a reception," Biden said to Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic on Monday about the papal mass, according to a pool report. "So unless I'm prepared to join the Eastern Orthodox Church, as a Roman Catholic, I'd better show up or I'll lose my soul."

A group of House members led by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) also traveled to Rome for the occasion.
