New Mexican ambassador gives Pope Francis typical sweets
The new Mexican ambassador to the Vatican is journalist Alberto Barranco.
His first encounter with the pope was very cordial.
...Thank you for welcoming us on such a special day, 50 years since your ordination.
And after Guadalupe...
That is very important.
These are my credentials.
The pope didn't fail to crack a joke about Mexico.
Even atheists are Guadalupanos.
Pope Francis greeted the new ambassador's relatives and his principal collaborators in the Holy See.
Alberto Barranco brought the pope sweets from his homeland.
This candy is made in Mexico from a plant called amaranth.
Then, as per tradition, the pope invited his guests to pray with him for his work.
The encounter concluded with a private meeting between the pope and the new ambassador.
