December 15, 2013 was Bambinelli Sunday–Remember that? That was the day on which children from Rome and environs brought the Infant Jesus from their family creche to St. Peter’s Square to be blessed by Pope Francis. I told that story at the time.
But that’s not all the Holy Father did that weekend. He also stopped in on Saturday, December 14 for a visit at St. Martha’s Dispensary at the Vatican. The maternal and pediatric clinic there serves mainly immigrants.
I just ran across this picture of that visit to St. Martha’s, courtesy of The Boston Pilot–and I was charmed. I thought you’d like it, too.
