A determined and tiny fan rushed Pope Francis while the Pontiff spoke on stage to thousands gathered in St. Peter’s Square to celebrate a weekend Family Pilgrimage at the Tomb of St. Peter, according to Yahoo News on Tuesday.
We’ve all witnessed a similar situation, a fidgety child at Mass who somehow makes his or her way up to the altar. Some priests ignore the child and continue on with the service while others embrace the innocence. Not only did Pope Francis welcome the small boy onto the stage, but the Pontiff also offered the tiny fan his papal chair as reported by Yahoo News.
Translated: Nice picture: at the hearing # PapeFrançois seated 1child a little restless in his chair & continues his speech!
Pope Francis invited all generations to unite and “live the joy of faith” during the Family Pilgrimage, which occurred on Saturday, and as the Holy Father spoke to the families, the young boy, who appears to be about 5-years-old, wandered on stage and grasped the Pope’s legs. The child then kissed the Pontiff’s cross and interfered as Pope Francis greeted his line of guests. Papa Francesco can now add patience to his list of endearing virtues.
