    Seeing Pope Francis In New York City


    I was pleasantly surprised to be invited to see Pope Francis last week in Central Park by a family member who obtained tickets through a lottery at work. I never thought in a million years that I would be lucky enough to score them on my own through the local lottery at the church or on the city's website so this was unbelievable good fortune!


    I was impressed by the way NYPD as well as other law enforcement bureaus handled security. It was very thorough and very professional. Every member of law enforcement was a pleasure to meet. I am truly grateful for all of the effort to make Pope Francis's visit to our great city so safe.


    Although everyone there stood for over 3 hours for a mere glimpse of the Holy Father, it was well worth it. To be in the presence of someone so humble who truly sets an example for others, regardless of their religious affiliation, was outstanding. This was truly an experience I will cherish forever!
