Pope greets women who chose life over abortion

.- During the recitation of the Angelus on Sunday at the Papal residence of Castelgandolfo, Pope John Paul II welcomed a group of Italian women and their children, who they had after rejecting abortion.

The young Italian women and their children shared a joyful moment with the Pontiff at the conclusion of the Sunday prayer.

The Pope also briefly addressed them and the pro-life organization they are a part of:

“I greet the group from the Parish of San Martino in Vigodarzere and several women who have rejected abortion, with their children, and accompanied by the leaders of the community ‘Opera Mater Dei’ of Castelgandolfo,” the Pope said.

“Opera Mater Dei” was founded in the 1950s by Maria Antonietta Bordini, a Catholic woman from the Diocesis of Albano—where Castelgandolfo is located—whose cause for beatification has been opened.
