Pope holds mass in Berlin's Olympic Stadium
Benedict XVI, the German head of the Roman Catholic Church, has begun his first official visit to his home country as Pope.
In a visit to Germany's parliament he urged politicians to seek justice, not just power, and to hold on to the Christian tradition.
Later in the day, the pontiff held an open-air Mass at Berlin's Olympic Stadium.
The stadium, where Hitler hosted the 1936 games, is now a popular sporting and entertainment venue, that can hold some 70,000 people.
