#PopeinUS - Resources from the visit of Pope Francis to America & Cuba


Do you want to know what the Pope really said in his visit to Cuba and the U.S.?

From September 19th through September 27th, Pope Francis made a historical set of visits to the countries of Cuba and the United States of America. His visit almost seem to have made both Cuba and the U.S. pause for several days in order to be attentive to the Pope's message. The Vicar of Christ would meet with many people, but it was very evident that the truest joy of his ministry was being in the midst of his flock.
The following links catalog the Pope's visits with video and text from the the Vatican (vatican.va).
