Pope Francis told NBC News he will be paying a visit to the city of brotherly love. NBC's Anne Thompson spoke to the pope in Italian as the pontiff flew to Asia for his first-ever trip. Thompson asked, in Italian, if the pope would travel to Philadelphia at any point. "Si," replied Francis, going on to mentioned the city's World Family Day, due to take place in September 2015. The Vatican typically does not announce Papal Trips more than six months in advance. Past remarks made by the pope about travel plans, however, have proved to play out. The pontiff said in July 2013 that he wanted to go to Asia - which is exactly where he landed on Thursday. The pope is visiting Seoul for five days and has upcoming plans to travel to Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
