Marquette Students watch Pope address Congress

While some Milwaukeeans are in DC, New York and Philadelphia for the Pope's visit most others are watching the events from here at home.

Marquette students were fired up to see Pope Francis speak today.  Many students sat inside the Memorial Union on campus to listen in.  

Marquette students were fired up to see Pope Francis speak today.  Many students sat inside the Memorial Union on campus to listen in.  

Many students said they're excited to hear from Pope Francis first because he's speaking to Congress, but also because he's a Jesuit and Marquette is a Jesuit University. 

The Pope certainly covered a variety of issues, but it's the way he's doing it that intrigues students.  Some hope his message will resonate with elected leaders on both sides of the aisle.  Even if that doesn't happen, they all feel Pope Francis has a unique and new approach.

Marquette has a lot of pope related events going on today, they have several students volunteering at Redeemer Lutheran in Milwaukee to help feed the homeless.
