There are some things I’m loving about Pope Francis.  This, for one:

During a ceremony on Sunday in which he baptized 32 children, Pope Francis implored the mothers in attendance — one of whom wasn’t married in the Church — to breastfeed their children, should they become hungry.

“Today, the choir will sing, but the most beautiful choir of all is the choir of the infants who will make a noise. Some will cry because they are not comfortable or because they are hungry,” the Pope said, according to The Independent.

“If they are hungry, mothers, feed them, without thinking twice. Because they are the most important people here.”

The Pope, who arrived at the Sistine Chapel in a Ford Focus, said in an interview last month that mothers should not feel uncomfortable breastfeeding their children during ceremonies he officiates.


Finally, after what, 2,000 years?
