Pope Francis Lets Boy with Down Syndrome Take a Spin on the Popemobile

While riding in his open air Popemobile, the Argentine Pope Francis saw a young man wearing Argentina's national soccer jersey. He stopped to speak to the boy, 17-year old Alberto di Tullio. CBS News reports:

Francis invited Alberto di Tullio up onto his open-top Mercedes at the end of his general audience Wednesday, letting him spin around on the pontiff's white chair while tens of thousands of people looked on.

The boy's father, Celestino di Tullio, told The Associated Press he choked up when Francis approached his son: "The pope saw him, embraced him. Then Alberto pointed to the car, and so he brought him up!"
