VIDEO - Pope Francis Meets with France's President Emmanuel Macron at the Vatican and Gifted the President a Medallion
Pope Francis met with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, on October 24th. This was their third private audience at the Vatican. They discussed the promotion of peace in a world overtaken by war, especially the war in Ukraine.
The French president had previously visited the Pope in November 2021 and in June of 2018. Over the years, the Pope and French President have also had several phone calls, including when the Pope expressed his condolences for the 2020 stabbing attack at the Notre Dame Cathedral de Nice, where three people were killed; and when the French President contacted the Pope to emphasize the significance of his Apostolic Visit to Iraq in 2021.
