“God speaks through Children” said Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State, who gave a young girl a free run.
On August 21, 2019, during Pope Francis’ general audience, a young girl who is diagnosed with an unknown illness walked up to Pope.
The pope told his security team to "let her be. God speaks" through children, prompting the crowd to give a round of applause. While addressing the Italian-speaking pilgrims at the end of the audience, Pope Francis focussed on the young girl who is "a victim of an illness and doesn't know what she is doing."
The girl, wearing a pink T-shirt with “Love” written slipped away from her mom sitting among the audience in the hall and she quickly reached the big marble stage where Pope was seated. She started moving with high springy steps, back and forth in front of him.
"I ask one thing, but everyone should respond in their heart: 'Did I pray for her; looking at her, did I pray so that the Lord would heal her, would protect her? Did I pray for her parents and for family?' When we see any person suffering, we must always pray. This situation helps us to ask this question: 'Did I pray for this person that I have seen, (this person) that is suffering?'" he asked.
Even in the year 2018, Francis allowed an autistic boy to romp around the stage undisturbed. Don’t forget to watch the little girl running around the stage undisturbed.
