48Well it seems official.  Pope Francis will include NYC as part of his itinerary this coming September.  The question for many of us here at The St. Francis Breadline is whether the pope will make his way to 31st Street and see first hand the oldest breadline in the United States.  It looks as if his visit will officially include a mass at Madison Square Garden, literally across the street from the breadline.  Who knows, maybe unofficially, the pope will stop by as he has been known to veer off the official course of his itinerary.  The NY Times has recommended a visit to the breadline, and since Cardinal Dolan enjoys an annual Lenten visit to our breadline, it is quite possible the pontiff will make a stop.  Lets pray, and keep our fingers crossed.   Fr.
