Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today regarding the selection of Pope Francis I to head the Catholic church:

"Catholics across Kentucky and the entire U.S. celebrate the election of Pope Francis I, and I join Americans of all faiths to congratulate him on becoming the spiritual leader of the world's more than one billion Catholics. As a voice of clarity and force on the great moral challenges of our time, the Pope plays a uniquely constructive role in world affairs, and as a herald of the Christian message of charity and reconciliation he calls all of us to a greater recognition of the inherent dignity of all men and women. We wish him health, happiness, and strength in facing up to the responsibilities and the burdens of his office."
