Pope Francis calls rape victim

August 30, 2013

Pope Francis telephoned an Argentine rape victim on August 25 and spoke with her for 30 minutes about “faith and trust,” according to a report that appeared in The National Catholic Register.

“The Pope told me he receives thousands of letters each day, but that what I wrote moved him and touched his heart,” she said.

“When I heard the Pope’s voice, it was like feeling the hand of God,” she added. “I was petrified.”

“The Pope listened attentively to my story,” she continued. “I’ll do anything now to go to the Vatican. He told me he would meet with me.”
