Description: As we’ve said before, Pope Francis is neither a liberal nor a conservative. After all, the world Catholic means universal. In a new video, columnist Michael Gerson describes the pope as a bridge between the left and the right, and also between developed and developing worlds. Al has thoughts on the Gerson’s comments.
Description: Pope Francis is now in New York City. This morning he addressed the UN and visited Ground Zero, where he attended an interfaith memorial service. This afternoon he will visit a school in Harlem and say Mass at Madison Square Garden. Matthew Bunson joins us again with his latest observations from the Papal visit.
