The Pope in America

A memorable week in the US as the Pope made an official visit to the country.
I am not very religious and definitely not Catholic but the Pope has won over vast numbers of people by his attitude to embrace all people irrespective of their beliefs.
He has raised many contentious issues which others would not have done. Today he conducted a Mass in Philadelphia for a crowd estimated to be in excess of one million strong.

I think his speech, as always wont change a single thing to those in power. Hope to be proven wrong but I doubt it.

I know what you mean but I think in this case things might be different.
During the Pope's visit security was at its highest since 9/11. Last week I was at MacDill and saw some of the security procedures first hand. Nothing left to chance but they were very concerned every time he deviated from the agreed schedule.
