Pope’s Visit to the US Begins

The papal visit gets underway in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, and Pope Francis has a very full schedule.

The pope begins a whirlwind six-day tour bringing him face-to-face with millions of American Catholics.

The pope is meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House, and on Thursday he becomes the first pope to address a joint meeting of Congress.
