LIVE: Pope holds call with astronauts in the International Space Station

Pope Francis places a satellite call with the six astronauts that are currently at the International Space Station. 

The meeting will be very similar to the one Benedict held six years ago with the group of astronauts.

It begins at 3 p.m., local Rome time.
