Business aside, when they finished the formal part of their audience, the conversation between the Pope and the group shifted again to the World Cup. 


-Your Holiness, Colombia will beat Greece.
-It's possible.


Before saying goodbye, the Pope had a surprise in store for the archbishop of Guayaquil, Ecuador, who celebrated his birthday on June 3.

John Paul II established the Populorum Progessio Foundation in 1992 to support the development of campesinos, or farmers, in Latin America.


The foundation leadership meets every year in Rome. The four-day session started on Tuesday and closed off with the Pope's audience.
