On Wednesday Pope Francis with a simple gesture touched the life of someone on the fringes of society. The Pontiff took the time to seek out a man who suffers from a terrible disorder that has covered his body in tumors, including his face. For many, he might be a frightening person to look at. The Pope embraced this man, kissed him, and prayed with him.
These moving pictures beg the question: How do we love the poor?
