Estoy Contestando en Ingles! NO he is not bringiing us hope! deceived people!

Exodus 20:3 KJV  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  According to several reports and video statement of  the pope calls Jesus and the bible a lie? 1 John  1:22 KJV  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ.   

  While the world is awe of the catholic pope’s  meeting of a world peace treaty?, and that might sound good, but the Bible says   1 Thessalonians 5:3 KJV (ref) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.    Only the prince of peace can establish the peace this world so desperately needs.

A look at the sites Pope Francis will visit while in the United States:

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE

Pope Francis will arrive in the United States on Tuesday afternoon through Andrews Air Force Base.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will travel to the base in Maryland, just outside Washington, to greet the pope. The base is home to Air Force One and the president travels there regularly for his out-of-town trips, but he hardly ever goes there to welcome a visiting dignitary.

One exception came last year when Obama met French President Francois Hollande at Andrews. When Pope Benedict XVI visited in 2008, then-President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, greeted him at Andrews.

 

THE WHITE HOUSE

Pope Francis will visit the White House on Wednesday morning, becoming only the third pope to visit the home. The others were Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 and Pope John Paul II, who visited President Jimmy Carter in 1979.

Francis will be greeted as most heads of state are, with his car pulling slowly up the South Lawn’s driveway to the spot where a red carpet will be rolled out and the Obamas will be waiting.

Thousands of invited guests, including many Catholics, will gather on the lawn to receive Francis.

Shortly after he arrives on the South Lawn, the anthems of the U.S. and the Vatican will play, following military honors that include a 21-gun salute and band members dressed in colonial garb. Obama will welcome the pope with remarks followed by a reciprocal address from Francis. They will then head inside the White House and reappear on the balcony.

Inside, Francis will sign the official guest book. He and Obama will exchange gifts before meeting in the Oval Office.

Following the visit, the Pope will travel in the Popemobile along streets near the White House.

CATHEDRAL OF ST. MATTHEW THE APOSTLE

The domed cathedral where Pope Francis will meet with all the U.S. bishops is best known as the site where Washington mourned the death of the first Catholic president, John F. Kennedy. He is memorialized with a marble plaque in the cathedral floor at the site of the 35th president’s funeral.

The parish dates back to 1840 as the fourth Catholic church established in the District of Columbia.

St. Matthew’s is the mother church or seat of the Archdiocese of Washington, and the current church hosted its first Mass in 1895. It was designated a cathedral in 1939 when the combined Archdiocese of Baltimore and Washington was created. The two regions were later separated. The cathedral was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

Inside the cathedral, Pope Francis and the bishops will say the midday prayer.

BASILICA OF THE NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

Next to Catholic University stands the largest Catholic church in the United States and North America, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The basilica is located in Washington’s Brookland neighborhood, which is nicknamed “Little Rome” for its numerous seminaries, monasteries, convents and other Catholic sites.

Ground was broken for the church in 1920, and the shrine was dedicated in 1959. The massive basilica now stands as one of the 10 largest churches in the world. It was designed in a Romanesque-Byzantine style with a colorful dome, but church officials say it was not designed to imitate or duplicate any other church in the world.

Pope John Paul II became the first reigning pope to visit the church in 1979 and elevated it to the status of minor basilica in 1990. Pope Benedict XVI visited in 2008 to worship and meet with the U.S. bishops. A church spokeswoman says about 1 million people visit the basilica each year.

Pope Francis will celebrate Mass with a crowd of about 30,000 from the basilica’s east portico, facing the campus of Catholic University.

The Mass will serve as a canonization for Franciscan missionary Junipero Serra to make him a saint. The elevation of the California missionary will give the U.S. its first Hispanic saint. Serra died in 1784
