At 9/11 memorial, Bay State residents welcome pope's message

NEW YORK -- Thousands of the faithful flocked to the 9/11 Memorial from the Bay State and beyond today to see Pope Francis, who is set to address an interfaith service at the site and meet relatives of those killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks.

"It's a once in a generation moment. It might not happen again in my lifetime," said Paul Flack, 50, of Needham, who traveled to New York with his wife, Kara, and extended their stay another day to take in the pope's visit.
