Obama Asks Pope to Pray for Kennedy

Associated Press
President Obama gave Pope Benedict XVI a personal letter from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and asked the pontiff to pray for the ailing senator.

Obama and Benedict discussed Kennedy at the end of a half-hour one-on-one meeting at the Vatican on Friday, White House national security aide Denis McDonough said. Kennedy was diagnosed a year ago with terminal brain cancer. He is a member of one of the United States' most prominent Roman Catholic families and a political ally to Obama.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters aboard Air Force One that Obama phoned Kennedy after the meeting. The spokesman said the pair talked for about 10 minutes before Obama boarded his airplane bound to Ghana.
