Pope Francis Meets with Lizzy Myers, 5-year-old Girl Losing Her Sight

via Christianity Today:

Pope Francis has blessed the eyes of five-year-old Lizzy Myers, who is gradually losing her eyesight from a rare genetic disease.

Lizzy and her family had travelled from America to Rome for Pope Francis’ Wednesday general audience as part of a “visual bucket list”. Her parents have created the list so that Lizzy might see some of the wonders of the world before she loses her sight.
