Boehner said of the pope, “His social teachings, rooted in ‘the joy of the gospel,’ have prompted careful reflection and vigorous dialogue among people of all ideologies and religious views in the United States and throughout a rapidly changing world, particularly among those who champion human dignity, freedom and social justice. These principles are among the fundamentals of the American idea.”

If Pope Francis accepts this invitation, he is the first pope who’ll address Congress. There is no confirmation that the pope will accept it.

This nation of ours and around the world is in turmoil because of its negativity. Each nation has their own problem and unable to communicate and unwilling to accept peace.
