Pope Francis Had Lunch with Syrian Refugee Families This Week

Pope Francis hosted some special guests for lunch on Thursday. According to the Vatican, the pontiff dined with 21 Syrian refugees who have relocated in Italy from a refugee camp in Greece—some of whom were given a ride on the pope’s private plane back in April.

It sounded like a pretty touching scene. Along with dining with the Syrian families, the pope exchanged gifts with the children: He brought them toys, and they made him drawings.
