The caption: “My brother is a low functioning downsie. He used to love to hold babies but it’s rare someone lets him now. My wife and I let him hold our baby today and here is his look when we gave her to him and then the way he held her without movement for 5 mins” 😭😭😭

Pope to Jesuits in Romania: “I see the Church as "a field hospital”+ "so wounded, also...by tensions within” but we "need go forward with meekness”... “it’s not the time to convince, to discuss... If someone has a sincere doubt, one can dialogue. But don’t respond to the attacks"
