Everybody’s favorite Pope, Pope Francis, the Pope with the Most, the Pope who has been capturing hearts all over the world since his inauguration, has just captured a few more. Those of breastfeeding moms.
Asked to comment on world hunger by Italian Daily La Stampa, he said,
“At the Wednesday General Audience the other day there was a young mother behind one of the barriers with a baby that was just a few month s old. The child was crying its eyes out as I came past. The mother was caressing it. I said to her: madam, I think the child’s hungry. “Yes, it’s probably time…” she replied. “Please give it something to eat!” I said. She was shy and didn’t want to breastfeed in public, while the Pope was passing. I wish to say the same to humanity: give people something to eat!”
