Family Believes Pope’s Kiss Helped Shrink Baby’s Brain Tumor
A baby’s brain tumor, which cannot be operated
on, reportedly reduced in size following a kiss on
the head from the Pope, at least that’s what the
Pope Francis kissed one-year-old Gianna in
September, during a papal procession in
Philadelphia, CBS Philadelphia reported. The girl’s
mother, Kristen Masciantonio, told the television
station: ‘She’s getting better and stronger. She’s
blowing kisses. She’s starting to point at things.’
The girl’s parents Joey and Kristen Masciantonio
have reportedly described the kiss as a miracle.
A comparison of Gianna’s MRIs from August and
November shows a noticeable difference.
According to the television station, the girl’s brain
stem had been ‘attacked’ by the toddler’s blood cells.
CBS Philadelphia reported the toddler has a sibling
named Dominic — and the first name of the
bodyguard who hoisted the girl up during the kiss
The Masciantonios have credited this as divine
intervention, according to the television station.
Gianna met the daughter of St. Gianna, her
namesake, while the pope was in Philadelphia, CBS
Joey Masciantonio told the television station: ‘Last
year was about living in honor of her.
‘Now we’re going to get to live with her.’ He also said: ‘I think this is all from God.
‘I believe the Pope is a messenger from God.’
