A visit to the United Nations starts the pope’s day at 8:30 a.m.; there, he’ll address the U.N. General Assembly. Three hours later, he’ll head downtown to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum for a multi-religious service. Pope Benedict XVI also visited the site in 2008, but Francis’s stop will mark the first papal visit since the museum was completed and the memorial was inaugurated.
At 4 p.m., the pope will travel to upper Manhattan to meet with underprivileged children at Our Lady Queen of Angels School in East Harlem. To cap off the day, he’ll lead Mass at Madison Square Garden. ∞∞∞∞∞ MORE »»»»
