Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement in response to the historic address from Pope Francis to a joint session of Congress:
“Today, we had the honor of welcoming Pope Francis to give a historic address to a Joint Session of Congress. The Pope’s message of working for the common good, protecting the most vulnerable, and preserving the dignity of each human life are values that have and will continue to shape the United States. Pope Francis is a uniting figure, and it is my hope that his address will inspire Congress to work together to fight for a society that produces unmatched opportunity for the next generation.”
