“I ask God to bless you, and to accompany you and your families, and all those people who work in this home and try to ensure that your smiles grow day by day,” he said, according to the official Vatican Network”.

  1. We can all succumb to a moving song, what makes this any different? I’m not moved by any person posing as superior due to a connection to a religion.

    I would prefer the child sang something with greater humanity expression.

  2. more than $12 thousand was raised in Ballarat last night to send Australian sexual abuse survivors to Rome to confront Cardinal Pell, it is great to see the community rally around these victims

  3. To the young cancer patient faith is a wonderful thing. Sadly for too many victims of abuse faith has been a curse.
