Was the Pope praying during the U.S. national anthem?

(VIDEO ONLY) The President of the United States received the Pope with full honors at the White House, in a colorful ceremony. The most quiet and reflective moment came when the national anthems of both the United States and the Holy See played. President Obama put his hand over his heart as the United States anthem played, while Pope Francis appeared to be praying during that particular part of the ceremony.
