Pope Francis receives Eskimo style greeting

During the audience with Huntington patients, the pope individually greeted over 100 of those suffering from the disease, as well as their families. ; He spent much more time with them than just exchanging a few words, a gesture that was very appreciated by everyone in attendance. ; Attendees provided countless spontaneous gestures. They asked him to bless photos, take selfies, and one woman even asked for an Eskimo kiss. She was just one example of what people did when they had the opportunity to be with the pope in the Paul VI Audience Hall. ; JRB/JC CTV FL -PR Up: JC
