The parents of a baby with an inoperable brain tumor say that the large growth suddenly shrank after the Pope Francis kissed little Gianna. They firmly believe that the kiss proved to be a miracle for their sick daughter.
Joey and Kristen Masciantonio say that ever since the kiss, the tumor has shrunk significantly and without explanation. In just two months, there are barely any signs of the tumor in Gianna’s brain, the Masciantonio family told NBC Philadelphia.
“I think this is all from God. I believe the Pope is a messenger from God,” her father Joey Masciantonio said.
There is proof too. A scan from August shows a visible tumor in the baby’s brain, but it’s difficult to detect the tumor in the most recent November scan.
“She’s getting better and stronger,” Kristen Masciantonio said. “She’s blowing kisses. She’s starting to point at things.”
The kiss alone is not the only divine intervention, claims the Philadephia couple. Pope Francis’ body guard Domenico Giani held up baby Gianna to embrace the Pope’s kiss. And Gianna’s big brother’s name is Dominic. Hmmm. Also, during the papal visit, that very same weekend, Gianna also met the modern-day Saint Gianna’s daughter that she was named after.
