Pope Francis, the spiritual leader of 1.2 billion Catholics, arrives in New York today to use its powers to heal the 'open wounds' of our planet, tainted with hatred, poverty, greed and pollution. His Holiness will speak at the United Nations on Friday morning, zip across the city to 9/11 Memorial, then on to Central Park where he will be greeted by 80,000 observers who won tickets at the lottery. His final event in the city is an evening Mass for 20,000 people just across the street from our office, at the Madison Square Garden. Due to extensive security measures around the building and anticipated traffic delays across the city, we'll be closed tomorrow and re-open on Monday, September 29.
