The emotional meeting between Pope Francis and the ambassador of Peru's mother

2015-12-07

Pope Francis received the credentials of the new ambassador of Peru to the Holy See,  Maria Elvira Velasques. They spoke for a few minutes.

But the great star of the audience, without a doubt, was the diplomat's 89-year-old mother. Pope Francis was surprised she could travel at her age.

"Her daughter makes her travel all over the world.”

"Forgive me, but I am so emotional I can't speak.”

After the traditional exchange of gifts, Pope Francis made a familiar request.

"Pray for me.”

The mother was left speechless, but Ambassador Velasques spoke for her.

"My mother always prays for you.”
