Pope Francis has had lunch with a group of Syrian refugees who were brought to Italy from the Greek island of Lesbos thanks to the pope’s intercession. The Vatican said that the pope brought toys and other gifts for the children, who, in turn, gave him a selection of their drawings. Both the adults and children had the chance to speak with the pontiff “about the beginning of their life in Italy,’’ the Vatican said.
