Breastfeed babies if you want, pope tells mothers in Sistine Chapel
- 4Jan 14 by EmergentOH yeah, Holy Father! My kind of Pope!
"If they are hungry, mothers, feed them, without thinking twice. Because they are the most important people here," he said, speaking in the same room where he was elected on March 13 as the first non-European pope in 1,300 years.
Francis said in an interview last month that mothers should not feel uncomfortable breastfeeding during his ceremonies.

- 5Jan 14 by Elvish GuideThe more he speaks, the more I like him. There is a long way to go in repairing the Church's tarnished reputation in the eyes of a lot of folks, but this guy is so down-to-earth. I like that he reaches out to people and lets the political chips fall where they may.
So glad that he took the time to reach out to nursing mothers!
- 5Jan 14 by aknottedyarn GuideI love the fact they he tells it like it is. The children are the most important people in the Chapel. I wish more would recognize that we always need to err on the side of caring for children, regardless of other issues.

Some will cry because they are not comfortable or because they are hungry. If they are hungry, mothers, feed them, without thinking twice. Because they are the most important people here."
So great. Viva il Papa!
