Pope Francis gave Speaker John Boehner a gift during a private meeting Thursday morning.

The pope’s gift was a bronze bas relief decorated with the logo of the World Meeting of Families, the largest gathering of Catholic families in the world. Held every three years, the event will be held this year in Philadelphia, the last stop on the pontiff’s three-city tour of the United States.

This year’s theme is “Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive, according to its website.

Pope Francis also gave President Obama with raised bronze sculpture on Wednesday.
