Pope Francis Shuts Down NYC

Unless your have been under a rock you heard that the Pope visited NYC. He made it a point to visit the homeless and less fortunate and he spoke on many different topics. Checkout his visit to Harlem.

On emigration

"Many of you have emigrated to this country at great personal cost, but in the hope of building a new life. Do not be discouraged by whatever challenges and hardships you face," the pope, standing before Independence Mall in Philadelphia, said Saturday afternoon.

"I ask you not to forget that, like those who came here before you, you bring many gifts to your new nation. You should never be ashamed of your traditions."

He called on the large Hispanic population in the U.S., as well as recent immigrants, to be "responsible citizens" who contribute to the communities in which they live.

"By contributing your gifts, you will not only find your place here, you will help to renew society from within," he said in Spanish.

On Religious freedom

"I take this opportunity to thank all those, of whatever religion, who have sought to serve the God of peace by building cities of brotherly love, by caring for our neighbors in need, by defending the dignity of God's gift of life in all its stages, by defending the cause of the poor and the immigrant," he said. " All too often, those most in need of our help are unable to be heard. You are their voice, and many of you have faithfully made their cry heard."
