A little boy had the audacity to interrupt Pope Francis during an address last Saturday in St Peter’s Square … and the whole moment was captured on camera.
The pope was giving a speech about families when the boy walked up, hugged him and refused to leave despite efforts by the security personnel to lure him away with enticing offers and gestures.
The boy pranced round the pope, and even sat down on his special seat.
The Pope seemed not to mind though .. as he patted the kid on the head when the latter held on to his leg in an effort to prevent security from taking him off the stage.
Don’t underestimate the power of little children.
