How effective was Pope Francis' speech to Congress?

Pope Francis addressed a joint meeting of Congress this morning. He spoke about a range of issues - everything from the death penalty to income inequality and immigration. We’ll talk about the speech and how it may have resonated with lawmakers, Catholics and the larger American public with Michael Murphy, director of Catholic Studies at Loyola University and Father Donald Senior, president emeritus and chancellor of the Catholic Theological Union.
