Pope Francis at the UN
Yes, he is coming for the opening session of the UN in September. Several sisters from UNANIMA communities have been contacting us for tickets. We have to tell them that—alas—we won’t be able to get near the UN ourselves. Security is so tight that even some UN security guards begged a priest with “connections” to get them tickets to stand outside the door of the General Assembly Hall! The Pope also will be appearing at Madison Square Garden, a famous sports arena.
Here is a link to the Pope’s new encyclical on Climate Change; our four languages plus several more are on this site: http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/encyclicals/index.html
