If reports are true, this is good news. I wish it had been public, but I’ll take what I can get. It is, at the least. recognition by the pontiff of what the faithful are up against.

Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, met with Pope Francis last week during his visit to the U.S., Davis’ attorney Mat Staver told CBS News.

According to Staver, the two met briefly last Thursday, September 24, at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Staver said Pope Francis spoke to Davis in English and asked her to pray for him. He said Davis, in return, asked the pope to pray for her. The pope told her to stay strong, according to her lawyer.
