Pope Francis meets transgender

A transgender man (girl to man) from Spain was given the opportunity to meet Pope Francis in the Vatican.

After his operation 8 years ago, people in his town including the Parish priest started to scorn him.  He had to stop going to mass because it was becoming unbearable.  The Parish priest even referred to him as the "devil's daughter".

Despite being mistreated by his community, he remained a Catholic.  Luckily the Bishop of the archdiocese was compassionate enough to deliver his letter to Pope Francis.

We all remember what Pope Francis recently said about gays in the Catholic Church, "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?"
