    Pope Francis arrives in the Plaza de la Revolution to hold a mass in the square on September 21, 2015 in Holguin, Cuba. Pope Francis is spending his second day of a three day trip in Holguin, Cuba after arriving in Havana, Cuba before Santiago de Cuba and then onwards to the United States.

    Pope Francis arrives in Washington D.C. on Tuesday to kick off a six-day American tour in which he'll meet the president, address Congress, speak to the United Nations, headline star-studded celebrations, lead thousands in prayer and visit with immigrants, prisoners and the homeless.

    Outspoken and reform-minded, Francis has taken on controversial issues in the early years of his papacy, and he's likely to hold forth on a number of them at stops in the nation's capital, New York and Philadelphia. The issues include many that are fiercely debated in the United States: immigration, climate change, sexuality and capitalism itself.

    There are a number of places he’ll likely make news including the Canonization of Junipero Serra, his address to Congress, and his speech at the United Nations. The Pope also plans to visit a Catholic School in East Harlem.
