AMERICAN POPE

Issue

As the first Pontiff from Latin America, he can be referred to as a truly American Pope. So will The Holy Father teach our US politicians a good lesson in humility and how to get along with one another, or is that really asking for too much?

After touring Cuba and lecturing the Castro brothers about the importance of religious freedom and service, The Pontiff is expected to arrive today and meet with President, Vice President and will also address a joint session of Congress.

Speculation abounds as to which topics Pope Francis will decide to bring up, when he becomes the first Holy Father in The US House and The Senate.
