Pope Sends Pensioner $270 After She Was Mugged

In her late 80s, she had sent a letter to Pope Francis about her being mugged. Last week a mysterious package arrived at the door of a local priest near where she lives in Venice to give her, containing an envelope with the seal of the Vatican’s Secretary of State…
It contained a letter offering the Pope’s blessing accompanied by aid for her–$270 (170 in British pounds)

How wonderful of him! Love thy neighbor as thy self. God bless the Pope.

That’s a great story :slight_smile:

I love to hear these stories. I can only imagine how many stories are out there above that which are being reported.
