    Pope Paul VI, left, and President Lyndon B. Johnson are seen during the Pontiff's visit to New York in this Oct. 4, 1965 file photo. The trip presented protocol problems. President Johnson wanted to see him, but the pontiff was a chief of a state not officially recognized by the U.S. The solution: Johnson flew to New York for dinner at the apartment of his friend Arthur Goldberg, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and the pontiff was welcomed to Johnson's suite at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel the next day.

    President John F. Kennedy and Pope Paul VI talk at the Vatican in this July 2, 1963 file photo. Kennedy's meeting with Pope Paul VI at the Vatican was historic: the first Roman Catholic president of the United States was seeing the Roman Catholic pontiff only days after his coronation. Kennedy - who struggled against anti-Catholic bias during his presidential campaign - only shook hands with the pope rather than kissing his ring, as is the usual practice for Catholics.
