Pope Francis has just completed his first trip to the United States, visiting Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia. The pontiff made headlines throughout his visit for his comments on a range of topics, from immigration to climate change. The “Francis Effect” was in full swing in Philadelphia, as the city welcomed families from around the world who waited for hours to catch a glimpse of the pope. In the wake of his visit, Villanova faculty experts can speak to Pope Francis’ unique style, his manner of communicating, the impact his trip had on the U.S. economy.
