To me its looks like hes trying to push the guys head down!! do Popes still have access to alter boys?
Pope Francis blessed and kissed a man with severe neurofibromatosis. A Quasimoto type unfortunate.
I really, really like this Pope.
Now, in an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the brave man has described the encounter, saying that being caressed by Francis made his heart beat so fast he thought he 'would die'.
The pontiff's hug was 'like paradise', he said. '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.
