Pope To Address Congress

(WLNS) – When Pope Francis visits the U.S. this fall, he’ll do something no pope has ever done before, speak before a joint session of Congress.

House speaker John Boehner made the announcement Thursday then issued a statement expressing gratitude that the pope had accepted his invitation to appear before a joint meeting of the house and senate on September 24.

The pope will also make stops in New York and Philadelphia.
