Recap of Pope Francis' U.S. Visit So Far

- As you know, Pope Francis will begin his Saturday in New York City right now.

He leaves for Philadelphia at 8:45 a.m.

Let's recap the busy week he has had so far.

Pope Francis touched down in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, and was greeted by the first family.

"The People's Pope," Pope Francis, seemed to touch the lives of everyone , both young and old.

Who can forget the young girl, who broke through the barrier to deliver a message to the Pontiff; to protect her parents, who are undocumented workers.

On Thursday, history was made when Pope Francis spoke in front of a joint session of Congress to talk about restoring hope, righting wrongs, and promoting the well-being of people across the country, and the world.

From there, it was off to New York, where he was greeted by thousands as they lined up on the streets.

He arrived at Saint Patrick's Cathedral,  where he took the time to bless a young girl in a wheelchair, a moment that was truly amazing.

Just yesterday he took part in a whirlwind of events, from his powerful speech at the United Nations, the Pope then went to Ground Zero.

He ended his night by celebrating mass at Madison Square Garden, in front of thousands.

And now, we wait for the arrival of Pope Francis in Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families!
