Pope Francis invited to address US Congress

Published: 03.13.14, 23:27 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - US House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday invited Pope Francis to address a joint session of Congress - an unprecedented event - during an expected visit to the United States next year.


Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill have quickly sought to invoke the popular pontiff's devotion to the poor.


Francis, who on Thursday marked the first anniversary of his election as the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics, is widely expected to travel to Philadelphia in September 2015 to attend the World Meeting of Families. (Reuters)
