Pope Francis addressed a joint meeting of Congress, the first pontiff in history to address both chambers. He implored members of Congress and the nation to work together to address some of the most urgent problems facing the country and the world, naming some of those challenges as immigration, environmental destruction, the arms trade, poverty, and religious extremism. He said that legislators are “called to defend and preserve the dignity of your fellow citizens in the tireless and demanding pursuit of the common good” and that all citizens have “a mission, a personal and social responsibility.” close
