Pope Francis and the Little Child

Pope Francis addressed families in St. Peter Square at the Vatican last Saturday. There's a video of the event, but it is four hours long. One of the highlights was a little boy who became attached to the pope, and came to stand beside him on stage. When some cardinals tried to remove him, the pontiff allowed the child to stay. The charming sequence is captured in a series of gifs and photographs at Buzzfeed

Me three, Jay.

This Pope has the capacity to touch the human heart. I hope he's around for many, many years because I think tolerant religious leaders are desperately needed.
