Wow #PopeFrancis leaves altar to Bless #Disabled Child in Wheelchair #PapaenMex - Video - SHARE
Pope Francis stopped the meeting with families in Tuxtla Gutierrez, to bless a child in a wheelchair. He walked down from his altar to bless the child, who was lifted up.
Pope Francis calls this "cariñoterapia”, -or kindness therapy-, a term he made up during his visit to the Federico Gomez children's hospital in Mexico City. This severely disabled child in a wheelchair being lifted up is similar to the Gospel story in which the people bring the paralytic to Jesus.
