As Pope Francis praises “parents devotion for their children”, let us recall that among those parents, are many same-sex couples caring for their own children.
The undoubted value of parents and children is not restricted to conventional opposite-sex couples:
On his return flight from Colombia, Pope Francis said that seeing parents’ devotion for their children gives him hope for the country’s future.
Concluding his press conference aboard the papal flight back to Rome, Pope Francis said, “I would like to conclude with an image. What most struck me about the Colombians in the four cities were the people in the streets, greeting me. What most struck me is that the father, mother, raised up their children to help them see the Pope and so the Pope could bless them, as if saying, ‘This is my treasure, this is my hope. This is my future’.”
