"It was the June 4, 2014 when, during the usual huge crowd among the faithful in St Peter's square, my eyes have crossed those of Francis. After an exchange of glances, nodded, and my skullcap is swapped with that of the Holy Father. A simple gesture, but for me equivalent to receiving forgiveness. The magnetic effect of the object owned and worn by the Pope was immediate, so much so that the skullcap still retains a slight sign of lipstick a faithful who wanted to kneel and kiss the headgear of the Holy Father.
