At Pope Francis’ General Audience yesterday, a young girl ran from her mother in the crowds and joined Pope Francis on stage.
Suffering from an undisclosed illness, she walked back and forth in front of the Pope, stood by or in front of him at times, and would occasionally clap loudly.
The Holy Father told the security to let her be, that she was beautiful and suffering from an illness and wasn’t aware of what she was doing.
He gave those in the audience a challenge.
“Have you prayed for her? For her family?”
