Tune in Thursday morning at 10 for special coverage from NPR. Pope Francis will make an address to both houses of Congress on Thursday morning – something no other pontiff  has done.  Our coverage  will be hosted by Morning Edition’s Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne.  They will be joined by NPR’s Rome Correspondent, Sylvia Poggioli, who is traveling with the Pope, NPR’s Religion Correspondent Tom Gjelten, and, from Capitol Hill, NPR’s Congressional Correspondents Ailsa Chang and Sue Davis.

Pope Francis is expected to make his address to Congress in English.
