Pope Francis travels to the United States this week with plans to visit Washington, D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia. The visit from Sept. 22-27 will be filled with many speeches, but two stand out among the rest.

On Thursday morning, the Holy Father is scheduled to give an historic speech before a joint session of the United States Congress. He’s the first Bishop of Rome to ever deliver such a speech. His remarks are expected to focus on politics and the economy.

On Friday morning, Pope Francis will deliver a speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York City. His remarks will be addressed to the 193 Member States.

Pope Paul VI spoke to the General Assembly in 1965; Pope John Paul II addressed them twice – saying that he came as a witness to human dignity; and Pope Benedict XVI was the last Pontiff to visit the UN, in 2008.
