In his meeting with Pope Benedict XVI today, President Obama asked him to pray for Senator Edward M. Kennedy and delivered a personal letter from the ailing senator.
White House national security aide Denis McDonough told reporters traveling with Obama that the president's discussion with the pope concluded with a talk about Kennedy, who is battling brain cancer.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters that as Air Force One lifted off , Obama phoned Kennedy and they spoke for about 10 minutes.
Asked about the letter, Gibbs replied, "The contents of the letter were not known to anybody that I know of except Senator Kennedy."
UPDATE: Kennedy's office declined to release the letter, saying it is private.
