This week, Pope Francis makes his first visit to the United States. His itinerary includes a meeting with President Barack Obama and an address to Congress in Washington; a visit to the United Nations and mass at Madison Square Garden in New York; and a final stop in Philadelphia, where he will help conclude the 2015 World Meeting of Families.

The Pope arrives at a time when the constitutional debate over the origins and meaning of religious liberty in the United States has reached a fever pitch.
