"I gave him my headscarf and a letter, the symbol and the petition. I told him there was what we needed from him: to help us. He asked us to pray for him, and I told him: 'Please pray for us as well.' He responded saying, 'You can count on me.' Then someone said to him, 'we are looking for our missing grandchildren.'” 

During their brief greeting, the Pope blessed the headwhite scarf, the group's symbol. 

Also joining the delegates for the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, was Juan Cabandié, one of the missing grandchildren found by the group. 

In the letter she handed to the Pope, the president of the group asks him for the help of the Church in Argentina to find nearly 400 grandchildren that remain missing to this day.
