Walden Honored To Be Involved In Pope Visit

Oregon Second District Congressman Greg Walden was on the escort committee during Pope Francis’ visit to Congress on Thursday.  The Hood River Republican called it an honor to have an up-close view of the Pope’s visit to the nation’s capital.  Walden thought the Pope’s remarks “were challenging and uplifting. Clearly he’s a man of the people who speaks his mind. I think he calls on all of us to be better citizens and better human beings, and really look after those who are less fortunate. It was just an historic day in Washington, and I think for all of America.”  Pope Francis went to the Speaker’s Balcony of the Capitol after his speech to Congress to greet the gathered crowd and gave a blessing.
