Pope and President Meeting Reviewed

Carl Anderson, the Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, reviewed Friday's meeting between President Barack Obama and Pope Benedict XVI. Here is part of his introduction.

'The speculation over what the pope and president would discuss, and whether or not abortion would be center stage has been answered affirmatively. As the Vatican's statement makes clear "the conversation turned first of all" to issues "such as the defense and promotion of life, and the right to abide by one's conscience."

We also know that President Obama told the pope of his desire to "reduce the number of abortions," and of his "respect for the positions of the Church." '
