UNBELIEVABLE: Pope Francis Baptises Man & Girlfriend Baby

Posted: January 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

Seriously, this is not a fiction as it happened real at the Vatican…

The man who is challenging many traditions in the Catholic church, Pope Francis on Sunday baptised the child of a man and his girlfriend (an unmarried couple) during a ceremony at the Sistine Chapel, in Rome.

Speaking in the relaxed manner that has become his trademark during the baptism, Pope Francis also broke with the tradition of delivering long and formal speech, and instead read a short script he had written himself.

The Pope has previously called priests who refuse to baptize children of unmarried women ‘hypocrites’, saying there was need for them to baptize the kids in order to pass on the Christian faith.

According to DailyMail, the unnamed parents and their child took part in the traditional Baptism of The Lord mass with 31 others, commemorating the day that St. John baptised Jesus.

Earlier on in September, the pontiff had telephoned an Italian woman to tell her he would personally baptise her child after she became pregnant by a man who was already married.

Shop worker Anna Romano, 35, was on holiday when she received the call from the record-breaking Pope.

In the words of Anna: “I was just so surprised that he had telephoned me. He said that he had read my letter and he wanted to speak to me personally about it and reassure me that someone was worried about me.”
