EU Leaders Meet Pope Francis
The Vatican announced Pope Francis will meet with European Union leaders on 24 March 2017, the eve of a special summit marking the 60th anniversary of the bloc's founding treaty.
The first non-European pope in over a century, Francis has not hidden his concerns that the old continent is not living up to its history.
The pope previously addressed EU leaders in May, when he accepted the Charlemagne Prize for promoting European unity. In his acceptance speech at the Vatican, the pope warned against the temptation to put up fences to ward off newcomers, saying he dreams of a Europe where migrants are welcome.
