The Pope and a disabled boy teach lesson about love.

On Easter morning I was watching the Easter Mass with Pope Francis afterwards he rode around St Peter's Square greeting the crowd. He was shown a little boy with cerebral palsy and of course, he reached down, picked him up and held him for a minute, whispering into his ear and kissing him.The entire world was watching in awe of the beauty of this moment. 

 I was delighted to discover I knew that little boy, I just met the previous December him with my daughter Christina who has Down syndrome.
