Eastery Things

Pope Francis was hospitalized a couple of weeks ago and while in the hospital, he baptized a baby in the neo-natal ward. What a story that baby and his mama will have to tell! I love that the child’s name is Michelangelo – so beautiful. This clip doesn’t put all of the subtitles in, but at the end he says to the mum that she should tell her local parish that her son has been baptized by the Pope. (In your face, local parish!)

If that weren’t enough, upon his release he signed a kid’s cast and then comforted a couple whose child had died. This must have been so meaningful for them.
