Habemus Chill Pope

Thousands of Catholic families from around the world gathered at the Vatican over the weekend to celebrate the Year of Faith with Pope Francis.

While representatives from more than 80 countries addressed the pope, a little boy walked onto the stage to say hello.

Pope Francis was visibly amused when the child stayed on the stage instead of returning to his seat on the steps.

He refused to leave the pope’s side, even at the encouragement of several cardinals.

When the representatives came forward to greet the pope, the little boy was initially not amused.

But then he realized what was going on and decided to help out.

When Pope Francis began his speech, an aide attempted once again to make the child return to his seat.

The little boy refused, wrapping his arms around the pope in a tight hug.


Pope Francis didn’t seem to mind.

In fact, he seated the boy on his chair before resuming his speech.

    This is so precious. It says more that a thousand words. And what a pope we have. This child epitomizes the innocence of children. It is the Apostles all over again trying to keep the children from bothering Jesus, and him saying “Let the little children come to Me!” I have watched it 5 times so far!

    I can’t delete this and watch it over and over and smile and feel inspired again. I love Pope Francis and the little boy is so precious and real.
