President Obama met for the first time today Pope Francis at the Vatican. He told the Pope, “{i}t is a great honor. I’m a great admirer.” Both exchanged gifts. President Obama gave Pope Francis seeds from the White House after learning that the Pope will start a garden. Pope Francis gave two medallions and a copy of Evangelii Gaudium, his first apostolic exhortation

Obama seemed extremely humble and shy in the presence of the Pontiff. The Pontiff smiled as usual and treated everyone as if they were more important that he. In other words, “Francis was being Francis.” Both then talked for almost an hour in private.

With Obama’s approval ratings in the tank worldwide and his exclusion from the list of the world’s top leaders, this meeting with the world’s number 1 leader will be a boost of sorts.
