Pope Francis Visits USA

Pope Francis Visits USA


Many of us have had the opportunity to view some or all of the events of Pope Francis visiting the US (first in Washington, D.C., then New York and ending his visit in Philadelphia).  Crowds of people attended the events, Mass at all 3 locations, meeting with UN, meeting with Bishops, visiting the homeless, those that were abused, those in prison, just to name a few of the events.


What a glorious inspiration that Pope Francis is to everyone! It is an amazing time for all of us! Some of our own parishioners actually took the pilgrimage to see the Pope! How exciting! We are truly blessed that he traveled to visit us.


Just want to leave you with a few quotes by Pope Francis:


"We need to see each child as a gift to be welcomed, cherished and protected..."

"Resolve not to be overcome by evil, but to combat evil with good.

"Help One Another This is What Jesus Teaches Us. This is What I Do. And I Do it with My Heart."


Have a wonderful day and week!
