Pope Francis and “the boy in yellow”

Making waves on the internet is a wonderful series of photographs and video of Pope Francis and “the boy in yellow”. Pope Francis delivered a speech during an audience with families in St. Peter’s Square gathered for the Pontifical Council for the Familyís plenary assembly, at the Vatican, Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013

Independent.ie is one of many sites covering the story: at 2:27 in the video the boy enters…even security giving him candy is not enough to deter him from the Pope, who he then hugs.

Many are commenting and reflecting on the good-natured Pope’s interaction with the boy. Buzzfeed shared a bunch of photos and GIFs (apparently out of order, but still heartwarming).
