Holy Father gets a look at unborn baby on cell phone and gives his special blessing
Today, a young couple asked for a blessing not only for themselves but also for the little one they are bringing into the world.
They showed the Holy Father an ultrasound image of the child on their phone and asked for his blessing, which he happily gave.
Aleteia’s Antoine Mekary was there to catch the moment.
