Pope Francis is addressing world leaders at the United Nations on Friday morning, where he is expected to address climate change, economic issues, the European migrant crisis and more.
The Pontiff’s big day in New York follows his historic address before a joint session of Congress on Thursday, where he implored lawmakers to transcend partisan divisions. He arrived in New York on Thursday evening, where he led sunset prayers. After his address, the Pope will enjoy a processional drive through Central Park. He will also lead thousands in a mass at Madison Square Garden.
