Robin Roberts and Josh Elliott Meet the Pope

GMAPopeFrom Times Square to Vatican Square, this morning’s “Good Morning America” was weeks in the making, but only came together in the last day. Robin Roberts and Josh Elliott traveled to Rome after Monday’s “GMA” to be in place for Pope Francis’s weekly audience in Vatican City this morning.

As the Pope greeted pilgrims in the Square, Roberts and Elliott waited their turn. It only lasted a few seconds, but will be meaningful for the GMA anchors for the rest of their lives. Roberts told Pope Francis she prays for him every day. Elliott broke out the Italian, then told the first-ever Jesuit Pope, “I’m a Jesuit boy. I went to Jesuit High School.” Elliott graduated from Loyola High School in Los Angeles.

Much of the visit was arranged by Greg Burke, the former Fox News correspondent who is now part of the Vatican communications staff.
