When President Trump visited the Vatican in May, Spicer was left off a list of White House officials who had a chance to meet Francis. Others show a man dropping to his knee and proposing to his girlfriend in front of the pope.
"At the time, some White House watchers speculated that Trump purposely left out his press secretary, who was on shaky ground". He was eagerly anticipating meeting the Pope, but discovered at the last minute that he was not on the shortlist of White House officials selected to join the President for the private audience.
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.
Whether simply thoughtless or an intentional slight, Spicer's absence drew some sympathy from White House press corps members, who often had a contentious relationship with the former communications director and chief strategist of the Republican National Committee. Catholic lawmakers from the United States and countries across the globe gathered to discuss concerns and share ideas about how to best serve their countries through their faith.
