Patriarch Kirill to U.S. in 2010?

Alex at ROCOR United, citing two sources, says Patriarch Kirill may be paying a visit to the United States:

Our sources in Russia have told us that Patriarch Kirill will be coming for an official visit to the USA in early 2010. The same news is also coming from other bloggers including Voices of Russia. In what would be an extremely hectic schedule, the Patriarch would be visiting places such as the Synodal Headquaters in New York City as well as possibly taking in the Joy of All Who Sorrow Cathedral in San Francisco to venerate the relics of St John Maximovitch. It is thought the Patriarch will also visit Jordanville to pay respects to the final resting place of the late Metropolitan Laurus, one of the architects of the blessed reunion of the two parts of the Russian Church in 2007.
