Little Boy Steals Show At Papal Address

But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” – Luke 18:16

You don’t have to be Catholic to love Pope Francis! The Vatican celebrated World Family Day at the end of October with the austere head of the Catholic church giving an address on the importance and value of children and families. One daring little boy apparently took the remarks a bit literally. The six-year-old Colombian orphan marched onto the stage and gave Francis a hug during the speech, and proceeded to spend 20 minutes on stage with the absolutely delighted Bishop of Rome, even taking the Papal throne for a personal easy chair. See the humility of Francis, the love of a child and the joy of family in the video below!
