Pope Francis encouraged women attending a ceremony in the Sistine Chapel Sunday to feel free to breastfeed their children in the church.Separately, in a new book by Italian author Andrea Tornielli, Pope Francis talked about the 17 trips to more than 25 countries outside Italy that he has made since his election in 2013 .The pontiff said he realizes he may be the target of an attack but that he would continue to travel without bulletproof vehicles or heavy security because he wants to get close to people.Pope Francis is expected to make as least two international trips this year, one to Portugal, and another to India and Bangladesh.
