Good morning. It's great to see you.

The warm encounter between Pope Francis and the Grand Master of the Order of Malta, Matthew Festing, focused on the situation that refugees from the Middle East and Africa are facing. They also discussed human trafficking.

The meeting took place right after the Feast Day for the Order's patron, Saint John the Baptist, which was on June 24th. It was cordial.

The Order of Malta works in more than 120 countries. They have 13,500 members and 80,000 volunteers, most of whom are medical personnel.
