Pope Francis Brought Me To Tears

As I watched the news clips of the instillation of Pope Francis, there was one image that both brought me to tears and has been on my mind ever since.  Besides being accessible and seemingly down to earth, he stopped the popemobile to kiss a disabled man on the day of his instillation. The entire scene still chokes me up-- the disabled man being held by another man, the Pope kissing him, and the smile on the man's face afterwards-- too beautiful.  I have seen it a dozen times in the last day, and even now, I am teary-eyed as I post it. 

The scene is from 34-49 seconds.
