President’s Service Blog: Meeting the Pope, Vatican City

May 10, 2011

Judy and I have experienced so many highlights during our travels. Recently, we had the honor of meeting with Pope Benedict XVI while traveling in Italy.

I presented the pope with our Peace Poster Plaque, commemorating the beautiful image of peace created by  2009-2010 winner Yu-Min Chen. I humbly requested that the pope pray that the children of our world one day experience peace like that depicted by the young artist. We agreed that we were hopeful this goal could be achieved in our lifetimes. It was a touching experience that Judy and I will both cherish.scruggswiththepope

    Hope it was a very sacred moment.
    Pray for the children and the youth of the world.
    May God bestow peace onto them.
