In the past month, Pope Francis embraced a man covered in boils from head-to-toe. He showed Vinicio Riva such kindness like the man had never seen before. Even doctors recoiled from him. Now, just this week, he showed more compassion in Saint Peter’s Square.

He noticed a man in the crowd with a severely disfigured face. The Pope approached him, embraced him as well and prayed with him. Pope Francis is showing the world what true kindness looks like.

His style as Pope has been inspiring believers ever since he was appointed. He doesn’t drive around in a bubble, he is warm and forgiving and he isn’t afraid to show any and every person compassion. This man is truly an inspiration, no matter what belief system you have, if any.
