Today Pope Francis greeted Michael D. Higgins, the President of Ireland. The meeting lasted 15 minutes, and they discussed 'the rights of humanity and its dignity in every stage and condition of life, the welcome of refugees and safeguarding the environment.'

In fact, during the exchange of gifts, Pope Francis received a 'climate bellâ? by Irish artist Vivienne Roche. 

'This is Vivienne Roche... it suggests that a bell is a very important symbol.'

Pope Francis then gave the president a medallion, and the three main documents he has released during his papacy. 

The president's wife was also present for this exchange, and at the conclusion of the meeting was very moved. 

'This is so wonderful, I'm so thankful.�

'A pleasure. God Bless you.�

Pope Francis selected Ireland to host the upcoming World Meetings of Families in Summer 2018. Though he hasn't officially confirmed he will go, his aides are working to prepare the trip.
