Pope Benedict XVI announces plans to come to Philadelphia

Pope Benedict XVI is planning to come to Philadelphia in 2015 for a world families conference. The Pope announced these plans Sunday at the close of a world families conference in Milan. Archbishop Charles Chaput made a trip to Rome to receive the news from the Pope.

Philadelphia will be the first American city to host the international conference. The World Families conference is held every three years and was commissioned by Pope John Paul II. The last Pope to visit Philadelphia was Pope John Paul II in 1979. More than 1 million people attended his mass on the Ben Franklin Parkway.

This announcement comes at a time when the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is having struggles in several arenas, most notably the sex abuse and corruption trial and the financial difficulties of the school district. Area Catholics can take heart in the fact that they are certainly not alone, the world is paying attention and will support them, and the Pope himself will be coming.
