The Red Carpet: Pope to Address President, Congress and the United Nations

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will receive Pope Francis at the White House on September 23rd. 

"During the visit, the President and the Pope will continue the dialogue, which they began during the President’s visit to the Vatican in March 2014, on their shared values and commitments on a wide range of issues," the statement from the Press Secretary read.

The following day, September 24th, Pope Francis will address a joint meeting of the U.S. Congress. This is the first time in U.S. history that a Supreme Pontiff will address the Congress.

On September 25th, the Pope will head to New York and address the General Assembly of the United Nations. He will conclude his visit in Philadelphia where he will attend the World Meeting of Families. Source Zenit

REMNANT COMMENT: Why does John 15:18 come to mind just now?   "If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also."
