(-VIDEO ONLY-) On Friday morning, Pope Francis met with a delegation from EXPO Milan 2015. The group was accompanied by the city's Archbishop, Cardinal Angelo Scola and also by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, who coincidentally is also from Milan.
The theme of the EXPO roughly translates to 'Nurturing the Planet, Energy for Life.' During the brief meeting, one of the organizers, Giuseppe Sala, gave the Pope an update on the project.
Their papal meeting was originally planned for December, but feeling a bit under the weather, the Pope asked it be re-scheduled.
The Universal EXPO in Milan will be held from May 1, 2015 to October 31st.
