Obama, Pope Francis exchange gifts

After a 50-minute private audience at Vatican City, Pope Francis and US President Barack Obama exchanged gifts with the Pope offering Obama two medallions and a copy of his apostolic exhortation "The Joy of the Gospel."

The head of state gave Francis a custom-made seed chest featuring a variety of fruit and vegetable seeds used in the White House garden.

The chest is made from leather and reclaimed wood from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore, which is one of the oldest Catholic cathedrals built in the United States.
