During the celebration of the family in St. Peter’s Square on Sunday, Pope Francis was joined on stage by a number of children – including a little boy who refused to leave the pope’s side. Despite the efforts of several cardinals to usher him off the stage, the little boy insisted on staying with Pope Francis, even hugging the pope’s legs as he gave his address to families. Pope Francis seemed delighted by the little boy’s playfulness. Below is a video of some of their interactions.
Not shown in the video is how Pope Francis got the little boy to sit still – by sitting him in the papal throne!
“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 19:14

“This path is not easy, but it is so beautiful. It’s beautiful. Tell them that.”
He went on to emphasize the important place that children and the elderly have in the family community, describing them as “the most vulnerable and often the most forgotten.” In a departure from this prepared text, the pope shared the advice he gives to young men and women in the confessional:
“When I hear the confession of a young married man or woman, and they refer to their son or daughter, I ask, ‘How many children do you have?’ and they tell me. Maybe they’re expecting another question after that, but I always ask, ‘And tell me, do you play with your children? Do you waste time with your children?’ The free gift of a parent’s time is so important.” (more…)
