A Source of Strength

Pope Francis presented the president with an apostolic exhortation titled Evangelii Gaudium or The Joy of the Gospel, in which he calls for a renewed focus on the world's poor. Obama said that he would "probably read it in the Oval Office when I'm deeply frustrated. I'm sure it will give me strength and calm me down." The president also received two medallions.
