VATICAN CITY: A warm embrace between Pope Francis and actor/producer Eduardo Verastegui at a private audience at the Vatican. Verastegui has produced several films on inspiring faith and the sanctity of human life, including Little Boy, Bella and For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada.

Trivia: While researching Bella, Verastegui visited an abortion clinic and ended up befriending a Mexican couple who had an appointment that day. They changed their minds about the abortion, and named the baby Eduardo. (IMDB)
