Boooo on the worst luck on our draw. Not going to be easy at all.

Mmmmm. Somebody bring me some of these please.
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.
There are somethings that medicine can’t provide. And this is one of them. Although medicine and science and surgery may be able to heal this man of his disease.. the love and comfort that the pope provides to this man is something that medicine cannot.
This picture really reminds me that often medicine is too focused on treating the disease and we have to constantly remind ourselves that we are treating people.
I pray for the strength to make my belief a reality in my every day existence
