Sudanese Woman Who Refused to Renounce Christianity Meets The Pope

Sudanese Woman Meriam Ibrahim, who was sentenced to death for refusing to become a Muslim, has been moved to Italy with her husband and 2 children. They arrived Italy this morning and met with the Pope. The whole world was drawn to Meriam's plight after she boldly refused to renounce her Christian faith. Pope Francis met privately with her today, blessing both her and the baby she had while in prison.

The Vatican said Pope Francis had 'a very affectionate' meeting with Meriam Ibrahim, 27, her husband and their 2 small children. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said: 'The Pope thanked Meriam and her family for their courageous witness and constancy of faith. For her part, Meriam expressed gratitude to the Pope for the great support and comfort she received from his prayers and from so many others believers of good will.'
