Beautiful: Pope blesses man with severely disfigured face

Beautiful: Pope blesses man with severely disfigured face November 21, 2013

Details:

While many spiritual leaders preach the importance of compassion, Pope Francis gives us all yet another example of what it really looks like to live a compassionate and caring life.

Just weeks after a photo of him kissing a man with a rare skin disorder moved many to tears, another picture was taken showing the pope embracing a man with a severely disfigured face.

The Pope spoke to him and blessed him after his general audience in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican on Wednesday, Nov. 20. At the end of each general audience, the Pope usually dedicates some time to greeting the sick and disabled people that come to meet him.

Reports do not give the man’s name or background. Stay tuned.
