WATCH: Pope Francis Giving Medicine to Sick Little Boy

Aleteia - published on 02/15/16

Mexico visit has been full of small moments of beauty

Pope Francis has often talked about the church and how the church is a “hospital for sinners,” whose sacraments offer medicine for the spirit. Here, the pontiff offers a dose of medicine for the body as well. Earlier in his visit, the Holy Father was serenaded by a young woman undergoing treatment for cancer.

Read the pope’s remarks about “kindness therapy” and Our Lady of Guadalupe here.
