A TERMINALLY ill infant has made a miraculous recovery after being kissed on the head by Pope Francis.
Gianna Masciantonio was just one-year-old in 2015, when she was plucked from a crowd by a Swiss Guard after the Pontiff stopped his motorcade during a parade in Philadelphia in the US.
Unbeknown to the Pope, he planted the kiss just centimetres from a brain tumour Gianna had been fighting since birth.
“At that time, there was no hope for us at all,”
“We were praying for a miracle because that’s the only hope we had. The miracle was the pope’s kiss. God showed us that he’s been with us.”
