Washington (CNN)Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has finally crossed an important item off his personal bucket list: meeting Pope Francis.
While visiting Italy with a group of legislators and politicians this week, Spicer got an audience with the Pope and was seen snapping photos of His Holiness and shaking his hand, a source confirmed to CNN. The story was first reported by America Media, a Catholic publication.
A message left with Spicer was not immediately returned.
Spicer, a devout Catholic, was not part of a group of White House advisers who met the Pope earlier this year when they traveled with President Donald Trump in May to the Vatican — a move widely viewed as a snub toward the then-press secretary.
