Pope Francis to US Next Week

Pope Francis to US Next Week

The media feed in the United States is going to move away from politics next week and gravitate towards a leader who is going to publicly discuss love, peace, harmony – and Christians. This spiritual intervention is much needed in the country. Yes, it’s about time the whole world talked about something uplifting and it’s a long time coming.

Since this is only the 10th visit to this country by a Pope and who has more than a billion Roman Catholic followers worldwide, the cities he will visit are bound to be in a fix for transportation and lodging. Pope Francis will visit Philadelphia, Washington, and New York in the last week of September and the cities are expected to witness record-breaking crowds.

He is expected to take part in church services, parades, meet with the U.S. parliament, and the UN. However, Pope Francis will be involved in many activities, involving people who are usually disregarded by the country’s politicians. He will visit the poor, refugees, migrants, homeless, people with disabilities, and also those in prisons. Jesus spent most of his time with people who were largely social rejects and that is exactly what Pope Francis means to do during his visit to cities in the US. His visit will be noticed by both Catholics and Christians of other denominations.

It is hoped the major media coverage of his visit will bring issues of the poor and disenfranchised to the fore, which has been sidelined for too long.
