Pope Francis meets with sick children and their families

"I am happy I can see you in person, and not as I usually do in television. At Lourdes, we prayed for you: we made you a sketch of the grotto, as a present. We promise we will pray for you and we ask you to pray for all the sick children at the hospital and all over the world. Please bless all the mothers and fathers, so that they will have a wonderful smile, just like yours!� Pope Francis blessed the audience, which also included the hospital's medical staff and several volunteers. Then, the Pope made a special request to the children. Pope Francis "At this moment, Jesus comes to you and gives you a big hug. And I ask you one last favor: pray for me! Will you do that? Are you sure? Great!� At the end of the meeting, the Pope took the time to individually greet the 22 children and their families. BB CTV -GDP -BN Up:SCar
