Pope Benedict XVI will visit the White House, April 16

This is the second visit of a pope to the White House. Pope John Paul II visited President and Mrs. Carter at the White House in October, 1979, on the final leg of a six-city United States tour. Pope Benedict will visit President and Mrs. Bush on April 16, the pope’s birthday and the first full day of his six-day visit to the United States. The White House announced that the Pope and President will continue discussions they began during President Bush’s June, 2007 visit to the Vatican, when they discussed their shared commitment to “the importance of faith and reason in reaching common goals.” These goals, said the White House, include “advancing peace throughout the Middle East and other troubled regions, promoting inter-faith understanding, and strengthening human rights and freedom, especially religious liberty, around the world.”
