He was first welcomed by Georg Gänswein, who serves as the Prefect of the Papal Household. After making his way along the Vatican halls, Obama greeted Pope Francis just before 10:30 a.m. This is the first meeting between Pope Francis and president Obama. The U.S president met with Benedict XVI back in 2009.
