WASHINGTON, DC – The Honorable United States Senator John E. Sununu (R-NH) today issued the following statement regarding Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States. The Pope arrived in the nation’s Capitol on April 15.
"Pope Benedict’s historic visit - the first Papal visit to America in 29 years – is an honor for our country. It was moving to see so many visitors from New Hampshire and across the nation gathered at the White House to welcome him," said Sununu, who attended Wednesday morning’s arrival ceremony with his family. "The Pope spoke eloquently about the universal values of compassion, freedom, and responsibility - a message that will be well received by people of all faiths across America."
