Pope Francis To Come To USA in 2015

It has been announced and confirmed by Pope Francis that he will attend the Eighth World Meeting of Families.  As reported in the National Catholic Register, Pope Francis said:
I wish to confirm, if God wills it, that in September of 2015 I will go to Philadelphia for the Eighth World Meeting of Families,” he announced at Vatican City's Synod Hall Nov. 17 during his remarks at an international colloquium on the complementarity of man and woman.
The World Meeting was begun by Pope St. John Paul II in 1994 and is held every three years.  

It will be interesting to see what plays out at this meeting, especially after the controversies which came from the recent Synod on the Families, especially the interim report (links found here), which was rejected by most bishops - and the final report (full document here) was quite different.
