Pope Francis caresses a man suffering from a rare disease on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 in St. Peter’s Square. The Pope, once again in St Peter’s Square for his general audience, put his hands on the 53-year-old Italian man, kissed, hugged and prayed with him.
Speaking earlier this week, Mr Riva said the pontiff’s hug was ‘like paradise’, adding: ‘He didn’t even think about whether or not to hug me. ‘I’m not contagious, but he didn’t know that. But he just did it: he caressed me all over my face, and as he did I felt only love.
‘ Mr Riva recollected: ‘He came down from the altar to see the sick people. He embraced me without saying a word. I felt as though my heart was leaving my body. ‘He was completely silent but sometimes you can say more when you say nothing.’ ‘First, I kissed his hand while with the other hand he caressed my head and wounds. Then he drew me to him in a strong embrace, kissing my face.
“We always complain on silly issues” “We are not satisfied on ourselves” …
From today onwards try to Praise Lord for Lord’s wonderful gifts on you” You are blessed with a beautiful face, but still sometimes you are not happy on yourself. Right?
