A young visitor to the Vatican is making headlines for sidling up to Pope Francis during a public event.

The boy approached the Pope, who gave him a little pat on the face. Then the boy even tried to get between the Pope and another man he was greeting. When that didn’t work, he joined Francis’ staff escorting a young girl to the Pope’s side.

The youngster even got to give Pope Francis a tight hug around the legs.
