The Pope has been making some calls, recently, reaching out to common people, comforting them, promising them support, and in short, portraying a more amiable side to the Vatican.
Anna Romano, who is pregnant with her married boy friend’s child, who wants her to have an abortion, wrote in desperation to the Pope.
She did not expect but was happily surprised to get a personal call from the Pope himself who told her to not worry and that he will personally baptize her baby.
New Pope has made several calls to people including an Italian student, a man whose brother was killed and even a dejected gay Frenchman to assure him that his sexuality 'doesn't matter.'

This is nothing new actually, as Pope Francis has been doing thing personally from day one. So much so that his first call was thought to be a prank!
Even Anna Romanohad a hard time believing her luck, “I would never have imagined that the Pope would pick up a telephone and call me and speak to me as if I was a dear friend. He reassured me and said a child was a gift from God, a sign of Divine Providence and that I would never be left alone. He said that as Christians we should never be afraid.
'He told me I had been very brave and strong for my unborn child. I told him that I wanted to baptise the baby when it was born but I was afraid as I was divorced and a single mother but he said he would be my spiritual father and he would baptise my baby.
'I'm not sure if he will, I feel as if I am dreaming but if he did baptise my baby it would be something else, that telephone call has changed my life,” she said.
