Aunque no es la primera vez que un papa tiene un gesto de este tipo, sí sorprendió que el papa Francisco rompiera el protocolo de recorrido que lo llevaba a la misa de inauguración para acercarse a un hombre discapacitado, besarlo y bendecirlo.

En el trayecto en su papa movil, en la Plaza San Pedro, en el vaticano, el papa argentino se percató que un hombre era cargado en brazos por otro y no dudó en bajarse del vehículo y acercarse al joven, con quien habló brevemente para posteriormente besarlo en la frente y ofrecerle la bendición.

Francisco, de 76 años, también cargó un bebé en brazos y le ofreció su bendición.

El papado del religioso argentino está marcado por la profunda crisis de la Iglesia, sumida en diversos escándalos de corrupción. Sobre su papel como guía de los católicos, aseguró que el verdadero poder del sucesor de Pedro es el "servicio humilde" y rico en fe, especialmente dirigido a los más desfavorecidos.
