Pope Francis meets privately with President of Argentina

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Saturday morning met privately with the President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri. The president was accompanied by his wife, and their family.

The Holy See Press Office did not issue a statement after the meeting, but President Macri told journalists it was “good” and “positive,” and that the two men discussed a variety of issues.

The Argentinian leader is in Rome for the canonization of Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero, the Argentinian known as the “the Gaucho priest,” and one of seven people to be canonized on 16 October 2016.
