Pope Francis greets and jokes with journalists on papal plane

(Vatican Radio)  Pope Francis briefly greeted on Friday the journalists who were travelling with him on his plane to Jordan to report on his pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  He joked that he comes like Daniel or a lamb (amongst them) but said he "knows the lions don’t bite" and therefore he goes in peace.  He thanked the journalists for their help and their reporting and acknowledged that it will be a very busy trip for them.  He then greeted the journalists one by one and confirmed that he intends to hold a news conference on the return flight to Rome even though it had been suggested  beforehand  that the trip would be too exhausting for that to happen.
