The first pope to address a joint session of the US Congress has arrived on our shores, and a source tells what the pope will say based on the draft versions of the speech to Congress.

"On Thursday Pope Francis will become the first Bishop of Rome to address a joint session of the US Senate and House of Representatives. During his speech he will tackle the misinterpretation of his words on economics and politics.

"That expectation is according to a source who saw the first drafts of the speech, and who spoke with CNA Sept. 18.

“'Pope Francis will likely use the speech to Congress to clarify his position on economics and politics, thus indirectly responding to the misinterpretation of his words,' the source maintained."--Andrea Gagliarducci, the Catholic News Agency
