Biden has lunch with Pope Francis. Details of the meeting, here.

Biden and his wife, Jill, met Pope Francis for more than 30 minutes at the Vatican Tuesday evening.

Pope Francis is in a transitory pontificate and is expected to step down in a couple of years. The Pope is a huge advocate for climate change and women’s rights. He has voiced his opposition to abortion and gay marriage.

The Vatican has condemned U.S. policy since Donald Trump’s election as president on the premise that Trump, who wants to defund Planned Parenthood, wants to change American social order to oppose women’s rights and equality.

The Pope’s visit to the U.S. was planned long before the election, as part of his tour of the Western Hemisphere.

During his visit, the Pope will also meet with with the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and directly with Trump, among other major gatherings.

During the Papal visit, the Vatican will be the site of the one of the largest papal audiences on American soil. More than 6,000 people are expected to pack into St. Peter’s Square on Tuesday and 1,000 more in St. Mary’s Cathedral and other churches throughout Washington.
