The Vuong family from Vietnam came to Philadelphia to see the pope and will leave with a book of the Gospel.
The family, who runs a manufacturing company in Hanoi, was chosen by the Holy See to represent Asia during the papal Mass.
The Pope will present the Vuongs with a Gospel of Luke and the family will take it back to Vietnam, where it will be reprinted and distributed.
"There are no words that can express our happiness once we heard the news that we would meet the Pope," said Vuong Thien An, 28, who works in the family business. "He's a great man leading a big religion."
