Pope Francis and Msgr. Guido Marini: Brothers in Arms!

His Holiness embraces Msgr. Guido Marini with profound affection at WYD 2013
Much ink was, and is being spilt over the alleged "strained" (let us call it that) relationship between His Holiness and Msgr. Marini. Here, I present a number of screenshots taken over the past few days of Pope Francis with Msgr. Marini manifesting anything but a "strained" relationship, but rather a deep friendship and affection, as one might see between a Catholic father and his loyal son. Any further commentary would be unnecessary.

I have been for some time an ardent admirer of Msgr. Marini. His expert and reverent direction of the holy liturgies is both beautiful and inspirational. I am happy to see that he and our beloved Pope Francis are happy working together. May this joint endeavor endure for many years to come.
