Pope Francis is a Daily Saint no matter the religion you follow.
The pope once again demonstrated his love and sense of humanity by stopping his car to get out and bless a disabled woman brought on a gurney to the side of the road.
The family in Calabria, Italy, had hung large banners on roadside buildings saying, “Francesco Stop! Here is an angel,” and “Dear Papa, Bless our young Roberta.”
Pamela Mauro, the woman’s sister, said she had little hope that her signs would cause the pontiff to stop, but as he traveled in a motorcade in the backseat of a Ford Focus, the car slowed, and he quickly emerged and began to bless Roberta, along with the two children in the group.
The whole scene was caught on video and posted on YouTube by Ivan parfenie.
