Pope Francis To Visit NYC In 2015

Just a few years ago this is not something that would have gotten me excited.  But Pope Francis has been a breath of fresh air to the Catholic church, and his message has been inspiring.  Millions will be looking forward to his visit to NYC.  
On Thursday, Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the head of the Holy See’s permanent observer mission to the United Nations, told the Associated Press “if he comes to Philadelphia, he will come to New York.”
The 70th anniversary of the U.N.’s founding would be “the ideal time” for a papal visit, the archbishop said Nov. 13. Next year also marks the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s 1965 visit to the U.N., the first such visit from a Pope.

The Pope is now confirmed for Philly, so . . . maybe Brooklyn this time?
