Invitation By Sec. General Ban Ki-Moon Accepted; No Date Scheduled Yet
(CBS) NEW YORK CBS 2 has learned that Pope Benedict XVI is planning to visit New York City for a trip to the United Nations headquarters.
There is no date scheduled for the visit just yet, but the United Nations confirmed that Secretary General Ban Ki-moon met with the Pope and extended an invitation for the visit, to which the Pope agreed.
Press Office Director Fr. Federico Lombardi S.J. made the announcement Friday. "The Pope," said Fr. Lombardi, "has accepted the invitation in general terms, and has expressed his willingness to visit the U.N. headquarters, although as yet there is no date or program for the trip."
Could this be related to the UFO seen over the Vatican recently? Why is the Pope visiting NY city and the UN? The last Pope visit to the UN in 1975 and 1995.
