Obama to visit Pope Frances S.J. on March 27, 2014

U.S. President Barrack Obama plans on visiting Pope Francis S.J. in Rome on March 27, 2014.

The visit shall come as part of a visit to Europe starting March 24-25 in The Hague, Netherlands, at a  Dutch government nuclear security summit, and continuing  on March 26, to Brussels for an U.S.-European Union summit with the presidents of the European Council and the European Commission, and meetings with Belgian leaders and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

No word yet as far as I can tell on how long Obama plans upon staying in Rome before returning to the United States, nor who else might be present.

Michelle Obama joined her husband near the end of the meeting and gifts were exchanged with the Pope.
