Over at NCR, Tom Fox notes:
I think this is the first time I have ever seen a pope touching a woman or have seen a woman’s hand on a papal hand. The times are changing!
The woman here is former Miss USA Ali Landry, who visited the pope last week. That appears to be Washington’s Cardinal Donald Wuerl with them.
Wikipedia notes that a few years back, Landry was featured in the pro-life film “Bella,” directed by her husband Alejandro Monteverde.
