This is so beautiful, so touching, so Christ-like that I had to post it, in case anyone has not yet seen it. Pope Francis reminds me so much of Jesus, in his tenderness toward the poor and the handicapped and those who suffer from disfigurement.
I wonder what this young man must have felt as he was embraced and kissed by our Holy Father. I imagine he felt love and acceptance…two things no child of God should ever be deprived of. God bless you, Holy Father, Francis! Thank you for showing us how to be Christ to one another.
