Rep. Gallego's Reaction to Pope Francis Address to Congress
Washington, DC - Congressman Gallego released the following reaction to Pope Francis’ address to Congress.
“Today Pope Francis challenged us to seek the political courage to tackle some of the most important issues of our time – migration of people, poverty, climate change, violence. He asked us to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves, but above all he encouraged us to seek dialogue, peace, respect and cooperation. At a time of political divide, the Pope’s message was loud and clear. I hope it resonates with Members of Congress and with the American people so that we can find middle ground, work together for the common good and respond to the Holy Father’s calling with action on these critical issues.”
