Pope Francis, who is thought to have Coronavirus, has been asked to stop his affectionate kissing of children for the next 14 days.
But The Pontiff has reacted angrily, telling advisors that The Church has a responsibility to maintain close relationships with young believers.
The Pope told Cutting News…that virus or no virus, God had chosen him to kiss children.
‘As the Head of The Church, I need to set an example,’ explained The Pope.
‘If I don’t kiss children, how can I expect all the other clergy to do it,’ he added.
