‘We felt welcomed’: Francis personally meets group of ‘transgender’ individuals in papal audience


Assessment: Pope Francis continues his quest for a new religion that is not Catholic and not Christian but teaches a different gospel of following ones conscience …

Pope Francis met with a group of “transgender” individuals Wednesday, with one of the group – a man who now lives as a woman – claiming the Pope told him to “always be myself.”

At the end of his General Audience June 22, Pope Francis met with a group of six transgender people, who were accompanied by an LGBT-promoting priest, a nun, and the mother of a transgender boy. 

“But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8

One of the group, Alessia Nobile – a 43-year-old man who now lives as a woman – told fanpage.it that “it was exciting. We felt welcomed.”

Nobile presented himself to Pope Francis “as a transgender girl,” but said that Francis replied “he didn’t care who I was, that we have one Father, as if he wanted to tell me ‘You are a sister’.” 

Nobile also gave the Pope a copy of his autobiography, called “La bambina invisibile,” which details his transgender thoughts and desires while growing up. 

Pope Francis reportedly told Nobile, “You did well to write your story. Bravo!”

Nobile added that Francis told him to “always be myself, but not to be wrapped up in prejudice against the Church.” The 43-year-old has a degree in social sciences, but currently earns his living as a “sex worker.” 

He praised Francis’ welcome for the transgender group, saying that the meeting with the Pope sent “an important message”:

Often we transgender people who are victims of prejudice, also nourish prejudices towards others and we think, starting with prejudice and prejudice, that the Church does not accept us regardless and we do not even seek a meeting.

I instead felt welcomed, taken by the hand, and embraced. In the month of Pride I think this is an important message. The best thing about having spoken with Pope Francis is that it was simply a confrontation between people and not about our diversity.
