This meeting between the Pope and a badly disfigured man will warm your heart.

Those amazing photos are the result of a meeting between Pope Francis and a man whose face has been badly disfigured by neurofibromatosis*, as part of the Pope’s General Audience in St. Peter’s Square. Hat-tip to Justin Green. See more photos like this here.

* Thanks to readers for pointing out it wasn’t boils, which are caused by an infection.
