Biden: Pope told me to receive Communion

Asked if the topic of abortion came up during a long meeting with pope in the Vatican earlier on Friday, Biden said no. He said the pope told him he was happy he was a good Catholic and he should “keep receiving communion.” The president goes to weekly Mass regularly and keeps a picture of the pope behind his desk in the Oval Office.
