Francis blesses former Miss USA - and unborn child

Former Miss USA Ali Landry — roughly six months pregnant with a baby boy — visited the Vatican last week, receiving a special papal blessing.  One thing is apparent. Pope Francis feels comfortable among women. This is good for the church in the long run. Furthermore, I think this is the first time I have ever seen a pope touching a woman or have seen a woman's hand on a papal hand. The times are changing!
