PHILADELPHIA -

Vatican sources have announced Pope Francis intends to visit the United States in 2015.

Although nothing is official, Pope Francis has expressed an interest in visiting Philadelphia in September 2015 for the World Meeting of Families.

According to a report by the National Catholic Reporter, the meeting is an event held every three years in different cities across the world.

There is also speculation that Francis might combine the Philadelphia outing with a stop in New York to address the U.N.  The General Assembly of the United Nations usually meets in September as well.
