Saluting the Pope’s commitment to environmental preservation, President Obama said at the ceremony, “Holy Father, you remind us that we have a sacred obligation to protect our planet—God’s magnificent gift to us. We support your call to all world leaders to support the communities most vulnerable to a changing climate and to come together to preserve our precious world for future generations.”

Washington, D.C. is just the first stop on Pope Francis’ tour of the U.S. His Holiness will also visit NYC from Thursday to Saturday, at which time he’ll meet with the UN, lead a procession through Central Park, and hold a mass at Madison Square Garden. He’ll then depart for Philadelphia, where he’ll see Independence Mall and hold a prayer vigil during the Festival of Families, to name just a few of the activities on his busy schedule.
