Pope Francis to visit Congress in September visit.


According to the U.S. Speak of the House, Pope Francis will become the first Pope ever to address a Joint Meeting of Congress. The Pope will visit Capitol Hill on September 24th as part of his multi-day visit to the United States. There is no news of what he will be addressing, but knowing the history of Pope Francis, his visit comes at a time when the U.S. government seeks guidance and direction.

John Boehner stated that,"It will be a historic visit, and we are truly grateful that Pope Francis has accepted our invitation." By this statement, it seems as though the government initiated the invitation to have the Pope speak before them. It is the hope of many that they will not just hear his words, but that they will listen to them.
