ClickOnDetroit spoke to Tom Brokaw Wednesday about Pope Francis' historic visit to the United States.

How is Francis' visit different from other papal visits?
What do you expect from Francis' speech to Congress?
Will this spur lapsed Catholics to return to the church?
How will Francis be remembered?
