Obama invites Pope to the White House

Pope Francis speaks with US President Barack Obama during a private audience at the Vatican.
President Barack Obama met Pope Francis for the first time today and invited the pontiff to visit the White House.

Obama made the spontaneous invitation as he was giving Francis a symbolic gift of seeds from the White House garden after 50 minutes of private talks in the pope's library.

"If you have a chance, you can come to the White House and you can see the garden," Obama said to the pope as he was explaining the gift in the presence of reporters.

The Pope, responding in Spanish, said "Como no?" (For sure).
