Everyone wants an audience with the Pope this week as Francis makes his first visit to the United States. Gov. Larry Hogan is on the very short list of people who will get a meeting with the Holy Father.
Hogan was released from the hospital earlier this week after undergoing his latest round of chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. On Tuesday, he posted on Facebook that he would be heading to D.C.:
As Governor of Maryland, I would like to warmly welcome the Holy Father Pope Francis to Maryland to begin his first-ever trip to the United States! I will have the great honor of meeting him on Thursday and will seek prayers and his blessing for cancer patients everywhere.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Hogan’s meeting will be “semi-private.”
