Pope descends popemobile while on his way to inaugural Mass, to bless a disabled man. Love him. He gives us a glimpse into Christ’s love. Humility and kindness that we are all called to exude.
Omg! Love the guy !!
The pupil dilates in the night, and at last finds day in it, even as the soul dilates in misfortune, and at last finds God in it.
