The first thing that the Pope will see is good old Southern Hospitality.
Which is something that is not being offered, 'officially' to the Prime Minister of Israel Benyamin Netanyahu, who will speak before a Joint Session of Congress (a coincidence) on Wednesday, March 3, 2015.
MARCH 3, 2015When the Bishop of Rome arrives at Capitol Hill (just like Rome's Capitoline Hill, more coincidences), there will be demagoguery, and a whole bunch of sychophancy.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a joint meeting of Congress and is expected to focus much of his remarks on the ongoing nuclear talks with Iran.

However, the biggest surprise will be when he meets the 535 Senators and Representatives of the United States; At the Capitol he will meet many co-religionists such as VP Joe Biden, John Boehner - Speakef of the House of Representatives, and Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, plus according to the latest Pew Research findings, 135 fellow Roman Catholics in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Yet, the biggest surprise will come when the Pope meets the Chaplains.
The Chaplain of the House of Representatives is Jesuit Priest (just like the Pope), Patrick J. Conroy, S.J. What a coincidence?
And, the Chaplain of the Senate is Seventh-day Adventist, Barry Black, Ret. Rear Admiral, USN.
Now, ain't that grand?
To come to speak to folks who understand you, who look up to you? Nice, right?
