Pope Francis became the first pontiff to address the United States Congress on Thursday in a speech that addressed a broad range of issues affecting the country, including immigration, the death penalty and climate change.After the speech, members of Congress from both sides of the aisle lauded the pope’s speech, with many praising his message of compassion for society’s most vulnerable.“He touched on everything that quite frankly we need to work on,” Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) said. “Political divisiveness, and the poor and families and all that stuff. I gotta tell you, I was very touched by that. It was amazing. I’m going to go back and read the speech again.”Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) offered similar praise.
