Starting with his arrival in Washington on Tuesday, September 22, the media supplied the public with continuing coverage of Pope Francis’ scheduled (and sometimes unscheduled) activities -- from his Tuesday, Sept. 22, arrival and greeting by both President Obama and Vice President Biden and their families, the Mass at The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for the canonization of Blessed Junipero Serra, his visit to a catholic grammar school, lunch with a homeless community at a Washington parish -- to his speech before the Congress of the United States.
After his Washington visit, continuing coverage followed the Holy Father to New York, starting with Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Thursday, Sept. 24, his speech before the United Nations on Friday, Sept. 25, speaking and praying at Ground Zero and meeting with families of first responders killed in the attack, a visit to a grammar school in Harlem, a ride through Central Park where 80,000 people gathered to catch a passing wave from him, and then on to Mass at Madison Square Garden.
