Pope Francis meets with the head of the Government of Andorra

Pope Francis met this morning with the head of the Government of Andorra, Antonio Martí­, in the library of the Apostolic Palace. Martí­ was accompanied by his family.  The meeting lasted 25 minutes, touching upon several social areas. The Vatican stated that the meeting was "cordialâ? and that it confirmed the "traditionally good relationsâ? between the two states.  A touching moment of the meeting took place when the wife of the head of state greeted the Pope. "I am a believer and before coming here I prayed for you.â? The Principality of Andorra and the Vatican signed an agreement in 2008 that regulates relations between the Church and the government.  JRB/JAE CTV VM -BN Up:KLH  #Papa
