Pope Francis’ Address to the Joint Session of the United States Congress
United States Capitol, Washington
Thursday September 24, 2015
Honorable Members of Congress,
I am most grateful for your invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. I would like to think that the reason for this is that I too am a son of this great continent, from which we have all received so much and toward which we share a common responsibility.
