Boy on Stage With Pope

This Little Boy Just Wanted to Give the Pope a Hug

Pope Francis is said to be a pope of the people, and when a little boy in yellow jumped on stage during an official Vatican event, he didn't seem to mind. Appropriately, the pope was addressing Catholics gathered in Rome for the Pontifical Council for the Family when the young boy stole the show, grabbing onto the pope's leg and not letting go. Pope Francis took it in stride, simply smiling as the boy took hold of the cross around his neck and kissed it. The Vatican also Instagrammed a photo of the boy getting comfy in the pope's chair.
