Kim Davies meets Pope

Attorneys for Kentucky county clerk Kim Davies said Tuesday that she had a secret meeting with Pope Francis during his historic trip to America — and he supposedly told the defiant county clerk to "stay strong," NBC News reported. 
The Vatican on Wednesday confirmed to The New York Times and other media outlets that the meeting took place. A source close to the visit also confirmed the visit to NBC News.

The clandestine communication occurred in Washington, D.C., on Thursday on the same day of the pontiff's historic speech to a joint session of Congress, according to Liberty Counsel, which has represented Davies in her legal battles.
