Catholic Herald skriver bl.a. dette om dagens besøk;

President Donald Trump is meeting Pope Francis for the first time.

The president, accompanied by his wife and several aides, arrived at the Vatican just after 8 a.m. local time. The president greeted Francis in Sala del Tronetto, the room of the little throne, on the second floor of Apostolic Palace Wednesday morning.

The men shook hands and Trump could be heard thanking the pope and saying it was “a great honour” to be there. They then posed for photographs before a private meeting.

Trump arrived in Rome Tuesday evening, his motorcade closing a busy Italian highway just after rush hour and prompting hundreds of onlookers to briefly step out of their gridlocked cars to gawk at the fleet of armoured vehicles. He spent the night at the U.S. ambassador to Italy’s residence. …

Jeg så en del av besøket (noen jeg sjelden har gjort før, det var mer pompøst og høyttidelig enn jeg hadde regnet med, spesielt før og etter de besøkende treffer paven), der bl.a. erkebiskop Georg Gänsweins viktige rolle er ganske synlig.

Under kan man se et redigert opptak av besøket, i to deler (før og etter det private møtet mellom paven og presidenten).

Del 2
