The Pope Francis has the plan to canonize the 17th-century missionary Junipero Serra, who established nine missions in California. But the most important will be the visit to the White House and the fact he will address Congress, then speak at the United Nations in New York, and participate in a massive Catholic rally for families in Philadelphia. The Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, specified, however, that ” nothing has been decided.” 2015 is, at the same time, the year when Pope Francis hopes to visit Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay, as well as the Central African Republic and Uganda. He also expressed his openness to going to China.
