Pope Francis to address Congress on Sept. 24, 2015

“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.” Revelation 18:10 (KJV)

There has never been a pope quite like Pope Francis. From the moment he began his reign over the world’s Catholics, he has barely stopped to catch his breath, generating a whirlwind of global activity. He is not only a man on a mission, he is also seemingly obsessed with apocalyptic events. In a recent interview, he urged people to read the 1907 book “Lord Of The World” about a Catholic pope and the Antichrist. Funny thing, though, he has never told anyone to read the book of Revelation which also has much to say about the Catholic Church, the False Prophet and the Antichrist. I wonder why not? We recommend that you go read chapters 13, 17 and 18 of Revelation and see what you can find there.

Pope Francis will visit the U.S. Capitol and speak there on Sept. 24 as part of his trip to the United State, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) announced Thursday. Boehner noted that Francis will become the first pope to make the visit, which promises to be an historic and well-attended appearance.



The pope’s appearance comes as he’s also scheduled to visit Philadelphia for the World Conference on Families and New York, to visit the United Nations.

Boehner made the announcement Thursday at his weekly press conference.

In a separate written statement, Boehner said that “It is my great privilege to announce that His Holiness Pope Francis will visit the United States Capitol on Thursday, September 24, 2015. On that day, he will become the first leader of the Holy See to address a joint meeting of Congress. It will be a historic visit, and we are truly grateful that Pope Francis has accepted our invitation.”
