    New York cheers Francis; today he addresses UN General Assembly

    St Patrick's cathedral bells pealed as Francis waved to and blessed the crowd, even giving the occasional thumbs-up.

    Pope Francis kicked off his second United States stop in New York City with a Thursday evening prayer at St. Patrick's Cathedral, one of the United States best-known churches. Thousands of people lined up along Fifth Avenue to greet him with cheers as he made his way in his open-sided popemobile to the center of one of the US largest Roman Catholic archdioceses.
