THE POPE PRAYS WITH CHILREN AFFECTED BY RETT SYNDROME


Vatican City, 27 November 2013 (VIS) – Before this Wednesday's general audience, the Pope met with a group of girls suffering from Rett syndrome, accompanied by family members. Rett syndrome is a rare disorder, almost exclusively affecting female children, which seriously compromises neurological development and causes delays in language acquisition and motor co-ordination. The loss of capacity is, in general, persistent and progressive.

The Holy Father greeted and caressed all the children, prayed to the Virgin Mary with them and their families, and blessed all those present.
