CWN Editor's Note: Eighty years to the day after Venerable Pius XII received the 38th (Irish) Brigade following liberation from Nazi occupation, members of the regiment met with Pope Francis.

Chris Trott, the UK’s ambassador to the Holy See, helped arrange the meeting and said he was “very moved” after Pope Francis unexpectedly asked members of the regiment’s band to play for him.
