February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California).

Wife of the new ambassador from Italy makes the Pope laugh

2015-04-13

Good morning, Mr. Ambassador.

It was a formal meeting between Pope Francis and Daniele Mancini, Italy's ambassador to the Holy See.

But the ambassador's wife grabbed the spotlight after she made the Pope crack a smile.

Holy Father.

A pleasure to meet you.

It is from India, from Kashmir, a border area in India ... They have woven ... You know they were excited when they knew it was for you? Can I put the piece on you, Indian style?

Yes, Yes, Indian style.

This is the Indian style.

The ambassador's wife also jumped at the opportunity to ask the Pope to visit them next

Pope Francis gave each of the delegation's members a rosary. And when the time to leave came, the ambassador's wife was so enthusiastic it made the Pope laugh.

The gift came from India because it was her husband's last diplomatic post. It wasn't an easy job: He had faced a diplomatic crisis over the imprisonment of two Italian sailors who were accused of killing two local fishermen during an anti-piracy operation.
