Following his speech before Congress, Pope Francis blessed a rare Apostles Edition of the Saint John’s Bible given to the Library of Congress from Saint John’s Abbey and University. The bible will be on display at the Library of Congress beginning this Saturday.
What’s the ultimate memento from meeting the pope? Going by what we’ve been seeing the past couple of days, it’s got to be a papal selfie. Check out this little boy snapping a pic with Pope Francis.
It is a tremendous honor to welcome Pope Francis to New York State. Both in his teachings and in his travels around the globe, Pope Francis has inspired countless people to live with kindness for one another, and to reach out for and help those in need. These are ideals that are also deeply entwined in the spirit of New York, and I am honored that the Holy Father is including our state in his first visit to the United States. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I am proud to receive him with open arms, and I hope that his visit will be peaceful and rewarding.
