No way to do so. They entire area he will be visiting will be totally off limits to those who are not specifically invited. This includes closing off areas of the Old City to residents as well.

I'm sorry to disappoint - but the odds of catching even a glimpse are next to zero.

Any place the Pope will be in Jerusalem will closely monitored and access severely limited, if available at all. If the last Papal visit is any indication of what to expect, when the Pope will travel from one point to the next the motorcade will go speeding by, the sidewalks will be blocked and any pedestrians will be re-routed to at least 20 ft (6-7 meters) away from the sidewalks. The Pope will ride in a closed limousine and you won't even be able to peek into the windows.
