Ryan to be Part of Congressional Delegation to Vatican for Inaugural Mass of Pope Benedict XVI
April 21, 2005

WASHINGTON - The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has selected First District Congressman Paul Ryan to be part of the 21-member bipartisan congressional delegation from the House of Representatives to attend Sunday's Inaugural Mass of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

"I am honored to be attending the Holy Father's Inaugural Mass as part of the official congressional delegation. As a practicing Catholic, this will be a very moving visit to the Vatican, and I look forward to being present for this historic occasion. Pope John Paul II was an inspiration to so many people around the world and a champion of freedom and moral clarity. Pope Benedict XVI promises to build on this strong foundation."
