Pope Francis, “The People’s Pope” lands in New York City and greeted by Mayor Bill De Blasio and Cardinal Dolan. This is the pope’s first trip to the “The Big Apple”. Thousands of New Yorkers are lining up and down the West Drive and 5th Avenue to catch a glimpse of the pontiff on his historic drive to St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Pope Francis has suggested that not only people go to heaven, but animals walk through the pearly gates too! While delivering his weekly address at St. Peter’s Square in late November 2014, the pope said, “The Holy Scriptures teach us that the creation of this marvelous design concerns all that is around us, and all that came out of the thoughts and heart of God.” While it’s unclear what Pope Francis specifically thinks about this matter, all one has to do is read between the spiritual lines to receive the message.
