A recent article in the National Catholic Reporter (which apparently referenced events that took place earlier this month on November 22, 2014) titled “Break down isolation, stigma of autism, pope says” (https://ncronline.org/blogs/francis-chronicles/break-down-isolation-stigma-autism-pope-says; obtained on 11-30-2014) by “Laura Ieraci Catholic News Service” on “Nov. 24, 2014” began the following way:

Vatican City — Pope Francis called for greater acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorders and their families to break down the ‘isolation’ and ‘stigma’ that burdens them.

‘Everyone should be committed to promoting acceptance, encounter and solidarity through concrete support and by encouraging renewed hope,’ the pope said Saturday during a meeting with people with autism disorders and their families, and with 700 participants in a three-day conference on autism and related disorders, organized by the Pontifical Council for Health Care Ministry.Pope Francis called the daily challenges for people with autism spectrum disorders and their families “a cross” and noted the need to develop more ‘comprehensive and accessible’ support networks.The accompaniment of people with autism and their families must not be ‘anonymous or impersonal,’ he stated. Rather, it must involve ‘listening to the profound needs that arise from the depths of a pathology which, all too often, struggles to be properly diagnosed and accepted without shame or withdrawing into solitude.’ “
Pope Francis continues to provide evidence that he has a relatively high degree of intuition.
