(AP)- Pope Francis is about to leave for his 10-day visit to Cuba and the United States.
The first Latin American pope will achieve a couple more firsts: He’ll be the first pope to address the U.S. Congress and he will also proclaim the first saint on U.S. soil.
He’ll also grab the world stage at the United Nations to press his agenda on migration, the environment and religious persecution.
He plans to make clear that Hispanics in the United States are the bedrock of the American church.
Millions are expected to attend various events on the tour, which includes Cuba, New York, Philadelphia and Washington.
