This morning, Matt Lauer, co-anchor of the Today show, had an audience with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican. Lucky guy, meeting and talking with a Pope is a rare event.
Matt, along and Al Roker, were in St. Peter’s Square this morning, and afterward shared a private moment with the Pontiff and New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan. Today, the Archbishop will give Matt and Al a private tour through the Basilica, including a look at Pope John Paul II’s newly installed tomb—the first look for an American broadcast. NBC’s Anne Thompson will also fill us in on how the Church has embraced social media. Those stories air tomorrow on Today.
Broadcast this morning on the Today Show:
What was the gift Matt Lauer gave the Pontiff. It was purrrrfect ... any guesses?
