Newsroom (31/10/2021 11:54, Gaudium Press) The Catholic news agency CNA reported that the Vatican refused to comment on statements made by Joe Biden after yesterday’s meeting with Francis. Biden stated that the Pope had told him that he was a good Catholic and should continue to receive communion.

The Vatican stressed that yesterday’s meeting was “a private conversation”. “I would consider it a private conversation, and it is limited to what was said in the public communiqué,” said Matteo Bruni, director of the Vatican Press Office, referring to the press release issued by the Vatican after the meeting, indicating that the topics covered were the environment, the pandemic, refugees and human rights.

The video released by the Holy See after the meeting, less than a minute long, shows a cordial Francis leading Biden and sitting down with him for the meeting; then a few shots in the Apostolic Library and later the exchange of gifts and farewell.
