On Sept. 12 and 13, 1987, Pope John Paul II became the first Pope to visit San Antonio.  350,000 people, the largest crowd to ever assemble for a single event in Texas, celebrated Mass with the Pope at Westover Hills in northwest San Antonio, while thousands more lined motorcade routes and crowded the places where the Pope would speak.
