Chapecoense plane crash survivors meet Pope Francis at the Vatican

Pope advises Catholic lawmakers to be guided by Church doctrine Pope Francis Tells Catholic Legislators: Laws Must Protect “the Defenseless” Like Unborn Children

Spicer's presence at the Vatican audience was first reported by America, the Jesuit magazine.

Pope Francis charged an worldwide group of Catholic politicians on Sunday to support laws that protect the "defenseless and the marginalized" in society, including unborn babies.

"This seems needlessly harsh", tweeted the New York Times' Maggie Haberman, "when else is Spicer likely to meet the Pope, and it mattered to him?" Others show a man dropping to his knee and proposing to his girlfriend in front of the pope. But Trump didn't include Spicer in the contingent that held a private audience with Francis - a group that included the president's family members, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and two more State Department officials, communications adviser Hope Hicks, bodyguard-turned-White House official Keith Schiller and social media director Dan Scavino.

Pope Francis urged the politicians to base their decisions on the Catholic Church's teachings, including the sanctity of life for all human beings from conception to natural death.

At the time, his removal from the visit raised fresh questions about Spicer's standing as the chief White House spokesman.

Spicer announced he was resigning as Press Secretary last month, and was replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The non-partisan group brings together lawmakers from across the globe to discuss the promotion of Christian principles in politics.

Brazilian side Chapecoense met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.

"These Catholic legislators find great encouragement from the church for their work, because very often they feel rather alone in their parliaments and in hard situations" he said.
