    We will be having a live conversation with Leonid Sevastianov in Moscow at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time today. Sevastianov will discuss the possibility of a papal visit to Moscow in the beginning of September — the first visit of any Catholic Pope to Moscow in history. The discussion will probe Sevastianov’s relationship to Pope Francis (see photo above) and to the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Please tune in at the link below. —RM
