Pope Francis to visit USA in 2015



According to major news outlets, Pope Francis is visiting the United States in September 2015 in order to attend the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. He told a group of religious leaders in Rome, "I wish to confirm according to the wishes of the Lord, that in September of 2015, I will go to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families."

This is awesome news and I am excited over it. It is also rumored that he may visit Washington D.C. as well as New York City to speak at the United Nations. Cardinal Dolan has made an indication that this may in fact be the case but will let everyone know if it is in fact official.
