Instead, what we hope our elected leaders will take away from Pope Francis' visit is the memory of his humility and the universality of his caring. A spiritual leader welcomed to the pinnacle of American society spent time not just among presidents, senators and judges but also the poor, outcast and downtrodden. On the day he spoke to Congress, he had lunch at a homeless shelter in Washington. In New York, where he would speak to the United Nations, he met with immigrants. And in Philadelphia, on his last day in the United States, he plans to visit the city's largest jail. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, 95 inmates have been cleared to attend, including "nine [who] are charged with murder, 15 with rape, five with robbery and 12 with assault."
