-Less than two months!

Granddaughter Giorgia May was the center of all looks when the official photo was taken. She made everyone smile.

The President of Malta gave the Pope a portrait of St. Francis of Assisi, and in return he gave him a copy of his Apostolic Exhortation Evagelii Gaudium and a medallion of St. Martin. The main gift, though, was the joy and laughs of the President's grandchildren.
