Before his inaugural Mass this morning, Pope Francis took time to stop and offer a blessing for a disabled man. The profound gesture is getting the new head of the Catholic church praise from Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

“True power is service. The Pope must serve all people, especially the poor, the weak, the vulnerable,” the Pope tweeted on his official Twitter account. “Let us keep a place for Christ in our lives, let us care for one another and let us be loving custodians of creation.”

The reaction was very positive to his selfless actions.

“Preaching the Gospel of Life without saying a word. I love this man,” responded pro-life activist Chelsea Zimmerman, who is herself disabled.

“Let us keep a place for Christ in our lives, let us care for one another and let us be loving custodians of creation,” another observer said.
