BOSTON —Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is inviting Pope Francis to Boston during the pope’s first trip to the United States, tentatively planned for 2015.

Walsh has asked Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley to hand-deliver a letter this week while he is in Rome, the Boston Globe reported.

“I think people in Boston would be very excited about the pope coming,” Walsh said in an interview with the Globe. “I think it would also be good for the city.”

O’Malley has previously expressed doubt about the likelihood of a papal visit to Boston.

“The city of Boston has always been known as a city of profound faith: faith that its diversity makes it strong; faith in doing the right and appropriate thing for its poor; and faith in the power of truth and justice,” the mayor wrote in his letter to the pope.

Pope John Paul II visited Boston in 1979.
