Latino USA Is Doing a Pope Francis Show

So I need to share something with you all today. In a few weeks, the Latino USA team will spending an entire hour on Pope Francis, the Catholic Church’s first Latin American pope. El Papa will be visiting the United States in September, so what better time to talk about his impact and what his papacy means?

Nonetheless, we need your input! I did the following video to explain. Let us know: what does Pope Francis mean to you? Do you have any stories about him that you want to share? What does this mean for the Catholic Church? For Latin America? For U.S. Latinos?

You can send us your voice memos via email to info@futuromediagroup.orgOr if voice memos aren’t your thing, share your comments below, tweet @LatinoUSA or tweet me @julito77.
