Poster - Special Olympics torchbearer thrilled at meeting with Pope Francis - Catholic Church
Award-winning martial arts athlete Chaica Al Qassimi presented the pontiff with the games' ball.
"It was amazing to meet the Pope for the first time," Chaica said excitedly on Tuesday morning. ] UAE, the first trip to the Arabian Peninsula by a pope, "means a more inclusive world, Arabs and non-Arabs coming together and being more unified, and having more accessibility in the world".
Chaica said Pope Francis was "very nice", and that he put his hand on her head – "I'm told that is a blessing from him" – and gave her an ornately engraved gold medallion as a gift.

Pope Francis is the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State. Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere.
At his first audience on 16 March 2013, Francis told journalists that he had chosen the name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, and had done so because he was especially concerned for the well-being of the poor.
Pope Francis said that the most powerful message of Jesus Christ is mercy.
Francis told La Civilta Cattolica that the church does not need to speak constantly of the issues of abortion, artificial contraception, and homosexuality. He thought that other issues, notably the duty to help those who are poor and marginalized, have been neglected. He added that the church had focused in trivial issues, and as such should not be so prone to condemn, and that priests should be more welcoming. He said the confessional should be used to motivate people to better themselves.
While he has said that the greatest poverty is "the lack of Christ," and the "only one real kind of poverty" is "not living as children of God and brothers and sisters in Christ", Francis has also been very outspoken against material poverty.
Pope Francis has courageously confronted many difficult issues in his life, such as the abuses, corruption and disappeared students in Argentina, sexual scandals in the church etc. He also has a great admiration for the family as a manifestation of God in its fullness.
So in summary, Pope Francis has all the hallmarks of a revolutionary, he has seen the light of God!
