Pope meets with disabled youths during his first visit to Assisi

2013-10-04

The Pope started off his 12 hour visit to the town of Assisi, by meeting with children and youths with severe physical disabilities. During the 45 minute gathering the Pope made it a point to personally greet the sick and their families.    

From the blind to the deaf, Pope Francis blessed and smiled at the group, which receives assistance from the Church run 'Serafico Institute.'

POPE FRANCIS
"On the altar we worship the Flesh of Jesus. In the sick we see the wounds of Jesus. We find Jesus hidden in the Eucharist. Jesus can be found through your wounds. He needs to be listened to.”

Caring for the needy has been a hallmark message of Pope Francis. It's something he describes as a test of humanity and also a civil concern. That's why he called on social and political institutions to join forces to help those in need.

POPE FRANCIS
"We need to say: These wounds cannot be ignored.”

The Pope's visit on the Feast day of St. Francis is very symbolic. Among his acts of humility and charity, St. Francis is remembered for caring for a leper he saw out on the street. Instead of ignoring him, he decided to kiss the ill person and offer care. It was an act of humility that not only changed the life of the Saint but that of the Catholic Church.
