US President Barack Obama meets with Pope Francis, March 27, 2014 at the Vatican. Obama called himself a 'great admirer' of Pope Francis as he sat down at the Vatican with the pontiff he considers a kindred spirit on issues of economic inequality. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama's administration and the church remain deeply split on issues of abortion and contraception.
