Yesterday, we watched as the Vicar of Christ stepped foot on American soil, and that, for the first time in his life.
Today, still, Pope Francis will perform the first ever canonization on American soil.
It is an exciting time of monumental importance. The U.S. is witnessing many pivotal events. We’ve highlighted a select few of yesterday’s to serve as a recap below.
Pope Francis shook hands with Bishop Paul S. Loverde yesterday as he arrived at Joint Base Andrews, following his visit to Cuba and beginning his 6-day Papal Journey to the United States. See more photos here.

Father Tom Ferguson, Episcopal Vicar of Faith Formation and Pastor of Good Shepherd parish in Alexandria, will be offering commentary on ABC7/Channel 8 between 9-11 a.m. and 3-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
