Pope Francis is a hugger. And he's continuing to touch his followers, both literally and figuratively, in ways his predecessor never did. His humanity and humility were again on display on Easter Sunday when, working the crowd in St. Peter's Square from his popemobile, the pontiff reached out and embraced 8-year-old American Dominic Gondreau. The crowd lifted Dominic, who has cerebral palsy, out of his wheelchair, and Pope Francis kissed and blessed him, moving the boy's parents to tears. Dominic's father, Paul, a professor at Rhode Island's Providence College who is currently teaching in Rome, called the encounter "incredibly moving." His mom said it was "like a kiss from God."

JESUS healed the sick and the infirm. The so called "vicar of Christ" should be able to. Didn't JESUS promised us that greater works than that which he performed we can do, if we believe?

When he was ordained a cardinal he gave out his limousine car, rejected mansion for a room apartment and cooks himself. He's jst a reflection of Jesus Christ's humility.

Did the Pope clarify this action with frosbel before undertaking such action? I mean he should be sure that such an action is biblical by seeking frosbel "insight" into the bible!

This man (the pope) just enjoys frustrating frosbel by his every action! It is tiring lol grin grin grin

What Frosbel believes does not matter.
The Bible has described the anti-Christ . He would be in the church and at the top of anything and everything we find worthy to worship. He will seat where only God should be seated and His followers would be condemned cos God would make them believe lies since they refuse to adhere to the true gospel of Christ. He who as ears HEAR.

Love unspeakable!

Only people who dont do charity work and do not go close to people with such a disability will not know how difficult it is to HUG them...even as simple as it sounds.

Most...or all of those criticizing the Pope fall in this category.

What the pope has been doing since he came is very commendable. And i dont think right thinking people are criticizing him for his humble and good attitudes. What is the issue is some folks are gradually turning the honour done to the pope into worship of the pope. I stated earlier that the subjects family said the right thing by stating that the pope's kiss was "like a kiss from God" and before u know it, someone comes here to try to bring similarity between the pope and God.

Oh...so now it is the Pope you will accuse us of worshiping...not just Mary, statues, rosaries, candles etc.

You sound like the Pharisees. The more Jesus went about doing good, the more they found one fault or the other.
