Muslim family of 23 plays for Pope Francis in Kazakhstan
Being parents to so many children is not difficult at all, according to these Kazakh parents, because the older children always help out.
They say their children are generous, the older ones take care of the younger, and everyone takes care of each other. "We are all happy," they add.
Joy of meeting the Pope
"We were very pleased to play for the Pope," say the parents. "We travelled far and the encounter gave us much happiness because we were able to meet the Pope in person."
They describe the way in which their heart beat faster when they saw him, and how lucky they feel, especially for their children, to have had such an opportunity.
"It has been a great joy for the whole family," they add.
We are all believers
Finally, the family noted that although they are not Catholic, but Muslim, they travelled this far because "we are all believers and we all believe in the same God."
They came out of respect for all religions, said the family, noting that they have a Catholic friend with whom they often attend church events. And in the Church, they too feel at home.
