Pope Francis attended an interfaith service at Ground Zero in New York City.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers reports:

Saying he had many emotions while standing at Ground Zero, Pope Francis paid his respects with a moment of prayer.

(Pope Francis) "You can feel the pain here. It's palpable."

Representatives from other religions, including Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and the Jewish faith also participated in the service.

The Pope also visited some of the museum's exhibits, including a cross made of steel beams from the Twin Towers.

This was the first visit by a Pope to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

Pope Benedict visited Ground Zero in 2008, which was before either the memorial or the museum opened.
