Pope calls single mother 'brave,' offers to baptize her child

2013-09-05

Anna is a 35 year-old woman who lived in Rome. She found out she was pregnant, but the childs father told her that he was married, and that he wouldnt take care of the baby. He advised her to get an abortion.   

Desperate, she wrote to Pope Francis to ask him for advice.

But the biggest surprise came a few days ago when Anna got a call from Pope Francis himself.

She asserts that it was a short and emotional phone call. The Pope asked her not to let people rob her of hope. He assured her that when her baby is born, if she couldn't find a priest to baptize him, he would do it himself.

In return, Anna guaranteed him that if it's a baby boy, she'll name him Francis, in the Pope's honor.
