Bishop brings greetings from Buffalo to Pope Francis

NEW YORK, N.Y. (WIVB) — A bishop from Buffalo is among the people who had the honor to meet Pope Francis during his trip to America.

Bishop Richard Malone spoke with News 4 in New York City about what the pope’s visit means for Buffalo, the country and the Catholic church.

“This pope, in his own wonderfully unique way, creates such a positive energy…not just among us Catholics, but everybody is touched in mind and heart by Pope Francis. It’s remarkable,” Malone said.

Bishop Malone has been part of several papal ceremonies, and was greeted by Pope Francis at a cathedral in Washington.

Malone even told the Holy Father first-hand that he brings with him the prayers and greetings of the people of western New York.
