Pope Francis invited to address US Congress

Catholic World News - March 14, 2014

Rep. John Boehner, the speaker of the House of Representatives, has invited Pope Francis to address the United States Congress.

“Pope Francis has inspired millions of Americans with his pastoral manners and servant leadership,” Boehner said in his invitation letter, as quoted in the Los Angeles Times.

After referring to the Pope’s “tireless call for the protection of the most vulnerable among us,” Boehner said that “these principles are among the fundamentals of the American idea. And though our nation sometimes fails to live up to these principles, at our best we give them new life as we seek the common good.”
