PHL17's cameras were on hand yesterday for the unplanned visit of Pope Francis visiting Saint Joseph's University. Pope Francis blessed a statue  called the "Synagoga and Ecclesia" created by sculptor and Philadelphia native, Joshua Koffman.

"It is an incredible honor having the Pope come down during his schedule in Philadelphia to take time to bless the sculptor to come to Saint Joseph's and to help spread the message of what they are trying to accomplish here. It’s a really wonderful and exciting thing," Koffman said.
