True Miracle? Girl Kissed By Pope Francis Makes Speedy Recovery And Beats Rare Brain Tumor

Back in 2013, Pope Francis revealed that if he had one miracle to perform, it would be to heal children because it pains him to see them suffer. And the Holy Father must have been happy that at least one little girl was making an amazing recovery after he kissed her on her head.
Gianna Masciantonio was born in 2014 with an extremely rare blood disease that caused a tumor in her brain. Desperate parents took their baby daughter for chemo, but they were still extremely worried, as doctors gave them no hope.
So, when Pope Francis was in their home state, an FBI agent helped the family by getting the Holy Father’s attention. Without knowing the girl’s tragic story, Pope gave her a kiss on the head, just centimeters away from the tumor.
And then it was time for miracle!
Over the next few weeks, Gianna had 2 sessions of chemo. Soon, they did an MRI that showed that her tumor was barely visible! Now, 3 years later after the kiss, the family reveals it’s gone, and the girl is doing great, and she's looking forward to attending preschool.
Of course, her recovery is an accomplishment of a talented team of physicians. But her parents don’t deny that Pope Francis’ kiss was the beginning of her journey to recovery and a major source of hope. As father Joey Masciantonio said:
That kiss meant more to my family than anyone could ever imagine.
Mom Kristen Masciantonio added:
I think Pope Francis is a living saint and to us, he gave us a sign that God has been with us through this entire journey.
Still, many people were skeptical about Pope’s role in recovery
Sounds like a clear case of publication bias to me. Why no mention of the hundreds of other sick babies he kissed who died afterwards?— Alexi Star (@alexi_starr) August 20, 2018
Only God can heal not a man that thinks he is a god the pope is part of the Antichrist system and has nothing to do with God— cprtheone X (*.*) (@cprtheone) August 19, 2018
Pope gets the credit for doctors work? At least the money went to where the healing happened. https://t.co/XkQaawUYBV— Richard Rapa (@richardrapa) August 19, 2018
Maybe doctors and nurses and oncologists had something to do with it?— Smoodgey Boodgey (@EKlocinski) August 19, 2018
What do you think about that?
