Pope Francis baptised 32 babies in the Sistine Chapel on Sunday.
Formally welcoming the infants into the Catholic Church on Sunday, Francis spoke to parents in his usual informal way, and called the babies’ crying “the most beautiful choir.”
Francis pronounced the babies’ names one by one, as beaming parents held their children, dressed in white satin or silk gowns under Michelangelo’s frescoes.
Sunday was the first time he has carried out a Baptism ceremony in the chapel.
