History was made when two living popes met. It remains to be seen whether Francis will change the course of the Catholic Church.

Lawmakers in Canada called on Pope Francis to publicly apologize on behalf of the Catholic Church for its role in boarding schools that abused aboriginal children. The pontiff has said he can't "personally respond."
