According to sources, the couple met with Francis to talk about their plans to help the religious leader's foundation. Mr. Clooney will reportedly serve as an ambassador for one of the organization's projects.

Per the org's website, the mission of Scholas Occurrente is to "promote social integration and the culture of encounter for peace". It's not surprising the duo is collaborating with the foundation's mission considering Amal is an activist and human rights lawyer herself. Not to mention the actor is a longtime supporter of charities and other global peace efforts.

Prior to the special gathering, the pair enjoyed an unbelievable dinner at eatery Dal Bolognese overlooking the city's Rome's Piazza del Puopolo. According to insiders, the outing was exceptionally perfect and picturesque.

A staff member gushed to Us Weekly of the fine dining experience:

"They ate antipasto with Italy's finest prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella cheese and culatello, a very fine cured ham from Emilia Romagna. All the food was washed down with an expensive wine from one of the most famous Italian wine producers, Gaja, particularly famous for top red wines."

Yum! Color us totally jealous!

We'll be sure to keep you updated on the rest of the couple's trip and their upcoming work with the foundation. We bet the Pope really appreciates Amal and George's help!

A new holy war has arrived!

On Wednesday, Pope Francis took aim at Donald Trump over his plan to build a wall across the Mexican border to deter illegal immigration — a move which has often been cited as a racist and ignorant of human suffering.

Well, it looks the holiest man around town isn't a fan of the proposed project either!

This is incredible — and they are REALLY talented!

A group of pop-singing nuns who call themselves Siervas (or "The Servants") will perform in front of Pope Francis on Wednesday, and it's about time.

Because they are really talented and wholly fun to watch!!

The group, who went viral last year with their music video Confía en Dios (or Trust In God), is comprised of 12 sisters based in Peru, all playing instruments and singing along in a very by-the-book pop band!

Now the sisters will play in front of the pope in Juarez, Mexico — one of the stops on their Mexican tour that includes four other cities and performances!

Leonardo DiCaprio Hangs Out With Pope Francis To Discuss Climate Change!

no title

Looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is pulling out the big guns!

On Thursday, Leo met with Pope Francis at the Vatican in Italy to discuss very important issues like climate change and the environment. Also along for the ride was L.D.'s father George DiCaprio and the global fundraising chair for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

The meeting is not too much of a surprise considering both the Pope and the actor are staunch supporters of reducing our carbon footprint in an effort to make the world more sustainable for generations to come.

In fact, last September P.F. made a great comment about environmentalism at the United Nations General Assembly, saying:

"Any harm done to our environment is harm done to humanity."

How well said!

While the contents of the meeting were private, we're sure the two had a great brainstorming session on how to stop the horrendous crimes against our environment. They're both passionate AND knowledgeable about the cause, after all!

On another note, can we stop to reflect on what a great year DiCaprio is having? Not only did the 41-year-old get to meet the Pope, but he also won a Golden Globe for Best Actor earlier this month.

Who knows, maybe Leo will top off his fab month with an Oscar win!
