During his visit to the U.S.A, the Papa met with President Obama. Instead of just two hours as scheduled, the session went on for three days. At the end, weary Mr. President emerged to face the waiting news media.
Mr. President was smiling and announced the summit was a resounding success. He said he and the Papa agreed on 80% of the matters they negotiated. Then Mr. President declared he was going home to the White House to be with his family.
Five minutes later the Papa came out to make his explanation. He looked tired, and discouraged, and was practically in tears. Sadly he announced his meeting with the President was unsuccessful.
Skeptical, one journalist asked, “But your Holiness, President Obama just announced the summit was a great success and the two of you agreed on 80% of the items discussed.”
Papa got mad and answered, “Yes, but we were discussing about the Ten Commandments.”
