Putin to meet with Pope Francis?

Catholic World News - October 29, 2013

Russian President Vladimir Putin may meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican late in November, according to rumors circulating in Rome.

A spokesman for the Kremlin declined to comment on the rumors of a meeting with the Pontiff, saying only that Putin’s schedule for a visit to Italy “has not yet been set.” The Vatican has not issued any comment on the rumors.

Putin is due to attend a conference in Trieste late in November, and is expected to visit Rome during his trip.

    If it's true, it will be refreshing to see the pontiff stand for photos with a world leader who at least talks as if he were a Christian. What a contrast Putin makes with the pathetic cheerleader for immorality who disgraces our own presidential mansion currently.
