The “Francis Effect”

Post Summary: 

Today, Pope Francis is addressing the UN during their annual General Assembly.

Hear what our Senior VP Kent Hill has to say about the pope’s visit to Congress this week, and the power of the “Francis Effect” to inspire concern about “the least among us”:

“We are hard-wired to never know peace or happiness apart from loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves … and this pope helps us remember that fact.”

I stood in line with thousands in the pre-dawn darkness on Wednesday in front of the White House, many hours before Pope Francis arrived for his official welcome to the U.S. by President and Michelle Obama.
