Pope Francis walked out to greet Kersti Kaljulaid, the president of Estonia. 


Good morning. Thank you for the invitation.

Thank you for coming. 

Wonderful. Wonderful.

The first female Estonian president and youngest person in the role posed for photos upon her entrance.   

According to the Vatican, the two leaders discussed education, social justice and the care of creation before it was time for gifts. 

This is a sculpture of holding hands, taking care to support and to grow. It is created by a young woman and artist.

The pope in turn, gave her a drawing of St. Peter's and the joint declaration on human fraternity that he signed in the United Arab Emirates with the Imam of al-Azhar. 

Then he gave her a copy of the message of peace before he gave her each of his writings from his pontificate. 

The meeting comes after Pope Francis visited the country in September 2018, marking 100 years since the country's independence. 

Now, at the Vatican the two were able to pick up where they left off, with talk of peace and security, including how to prevent and resolve conflict. They spoke of the situation in Ukraine and the challenging future facing Europe, before warmly wishing each other goodbye.

Thank you very much for the visit.

Thank you very much.

Pray for me. Thank you. 

Thank you.
