Pope Francis in the USA - level 2

28-09-2015 15:00

Pope Francis was on a six-day tour in the United States. He met with Barack Obama last Wednesday. The pope said that climate change is a problem which we must address. We cannot pass this problem to future generations.

Pope Francis also spoke to a joint meeting with the Senate and the House of Representatives. He is the first pope to do this, and he a standing ovation met him.

After addressing Congress, Francis spoke to a group of 200 people. The Catholic Charities group serves these people.

Difficult words: address (to think and do something about something), standing ovation (when an audience claps and stands), serve (to help).
