Pope meets young Sri Lankan quadruple amputee
A heart-warming story in today's Zenit bulletin tells of Pope Benedict's meeting with Rajiv Janine, an 18-year-old Sri Lankan who lost his four limbs after a railway accident.
Rajiv asked the Holy Father's blessing for his brother who is to be ordained priest shortly and for one of his sisters who is a religious in the Philippines.
May Rajiv bring hope to many.
