A policewoman Saturday gave birth while going to attend Pope Francis’ holy prayer mass at Namugongo catholic martyrs shrine.

The officer identified as Jackie Among, an assistant superintendent of police, had gone to Namugongo specifically to see the Pope.

She has named the baby Franchesca.


While Among was busy bringing forth new life, Pope Francis was preaching fidelity to God, honesty, integrity of life and genuine concern for others which he said bring that peace which the world cannot give.

“Instead, it gives purpose to our lives in this world, and helps us to reach out to those in need to cooperate with others for common good and to build a more just society which promotes human dignity.”

The Pope used the occasion to honour the legacy left by Uganda martyrs who were killed for their faith.


“Lives which witness even now to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This legacy is not served by an occasional remembrance, or by being enshrined in a museum as a precious jewel.”

He added: “Rather, we honour them, and all the saints, when we carry on their witness to Christ, in our homes and neighbourhoods, in workplaces and civil society, whether we never leave our homes or we go to the farthest corner of the world.”
