BROADCAST AND DIGITAL RESTRICTIONS**Broadcasters: NONE Digital: NONE**~ SUBTITLED ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Pope Francis appears before pilgrims in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican. He's just returned from an emotional visit with refugees at a migrant camp on the Greek island of Lesbos. "I thank all who supported us in prayer for the visit that I made yesterday to the island of Lesbos in Greece. We brought the solidarity of the church to the refugees and the Greek people. Many of them were children. Some of these children witnessed the death of their parents and their friends. Some of them died by drowning in the sea. I saw so much pain." The pope symbolically brought three refugee families back to Rome with him from Greece. He said the Vatican will pay for them to resettle and find jobs.
