Pope Francis in America

Pope Francis is spending 10 days visiting Cuba and the United States, including a stop at the U.S. Congress, his first visit there since becoming pontiff in 2013.

Amid Pope Francis' first-ever visit to the U.S. this week, some analysts are digging into the books to note the amount of money the American government doles out to Catholic charities every year. (Associated Press)
