Pope Francis participated in a virtual audience with Americans from around the country during an event hosted exclusively with ABC News.

The event was moderated from inside the Vatican by ABC News’ “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir, as the pontiff engaged via satellite with individuals from three different groups: students at the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago’s inner city, congregants from a McAllen, Texas, church located near the U.S.-Mexico border and homeless men and women and those working with the homeless in Los Angeles.

The event will air in a one-hour special edition of ABC News’ “20/20” on Friday, Sept. 4 at 10 p.m. ET. In addition, the event will be posted in its entirety in both English and Spanish on ABCNews.com.
