Pope to meet President Bush today
Comment Email Print
 US President George W Bush is scheduled to meet Pope John Paul II at the Vatican today, as part of his European trip that has included stops in Berlin, Moscow, and Paris. This will be the second meeting for the Pope and the President. On 23 July last year, Mr Bush and his wife visited the Holy Father at his summer residence on Castel Gandalfo. The Pope's discussion with the US President are expected to include the Middle East peace process and the terror attacks on the United States. Last October, shortly after those attacks, the Pope met with former President George Bush, the current president's father. A White House official told a press briefing last week that the President did not intend to bring up the topic of the scandal caused by clerical misconduct in the US.
