Pope will be invited to address European Parliament
Catholic World News - September 26, 2013
Pope Francis will soon be invited to address the European Parliament, the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reports.
Martin Schulz, the president of the European Parliament, is scheduled to meet with Pope Francis on October 11. Citing an anonymous source in the European Union, CNA said that Schulz would ask the Pontiff to address the legislative body.
Blessed John Paul II addressed the European Parliament in 1988. Pope Benedict XVI was invited to address the body, but never made an appearance.
