pope francis blessing familyTwo weeks ago we highlighted a story about Michael Keating, the young man who was singled out by Pope Francis for blessing. Now we don’t normally just rerun news items, but this thoughtful follow-up story that just appeared in the Washington Post is too good not to share with you. And it provides a window into the life of a special boy and his beautiful family, written with a sensitivity that is all too rare in the media today.
