Pope Francis Baptizes 32 Babies in Sistine Chapel - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Pope Francis baptised 32 newborn babies in the Sistine Chapel on Sunday. Baptism is the sacrament at which infants or converts are initiated into the Christian faith. Francis poured water on the foreheads of the infants as part of the ritual. Unlike his predecessors, who usually delivered long and theology laden homilies at the yearly event, the pope offered a brief, improvised homily of some 300 words centred on the children.
