Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk returned to the Vatican, three weeks after the canonization of John Paul II. He met with Pope Francis on Monday morning at the Apostolic Palace.
During their 15-minute meeting, the two leaders discussed the impact of the canonization on the Polish people, as well as the Pope's planned visit for WYD 2016 in Krakow.
As many other world leaders that opted for simple gifts, Tusk gave the Pope a tea set, as well as a basket with traditional Polish foods. In return, the Pope gave the prime minister a pen.
Poland's head of government traveled to Italy to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Montecassino, which led to the Allied capture of Rome in 1944.
