Mid-Michigan bishop following pope on U.S. tour

Posted: Updated:

Pope Francis' tour of the east coast continues as he wraps up his visit in New York and moves on to Philadelphia.

Bishop Joseph Cistone, from the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, took a group with him to see the pope.

"Just being in the room, you feel the excitement and the electricity of this great man," Cistone said. "And I guess, as a bishop, it feels even different because my responsibility as a bishop and as a shepherd leads me directly responsible and accountable to the Holy Father."

Pope Francis is participating in the World Meeting of Families on Saturday, the event he has called the primary reason for his trip to the U.S.
