Pope Francis the Holy Father arrives in Philadelphia for the Meeting of Families
The Cathedral Basilica of St Peter & Paul is one church where he will say Mass This is one of the oldest churches in Philadelphia on the Ben Franklin Parkway We are so honored to have him here There have been many people here all week from all over the world for the Meeting of Families The City of Brotherly Love is truly showing their love Everyone is smiling and sharing the word of peace .
A retired Patrick McDonald will greet the Pope he is a wounded police officer The Pope will be presented with a state flowering plant Mayor Nutter Governor Wolf will also be there to greet and other Church dignitaries We are so proud 1.4 million Catholics live in Philadelphia I do believe people of all religions are excited that Pope Francis is coming and spreading his words of peace & love to our fair city of Philadelphia
The last Pope to visit Philadelphia was Pope John Paul II in October 1979 I remember it well my beautiful daughter was seven years old at the time Frank Rizzo was the Mayor of Philadelphia .
One of the messages that touched my heart was to take care of your homeless as our Lord Jesus was homeless when he was born Yes he was born in a stable without a roof over his head I hope others have heard this message and other messages he is spreading You do not need to be a Catholic to heed these messages Hear the messages of the Lord thy God the Lord is One It does not matter what name you call him he hears your voice
He will be visiting the prison on Sunday with a message to the prisoners
There have been many road closures and inconveniences for many people How fortunate we are for these small inconvenience to have a Holy message personally delivered by Pope Francis himself to our City of Philadelphia Small inconveniences for such a powerful message not just for Catholics but for members of all faiths
