Video captures child who likes his 'grandpa' pope

Another video has emerged of the child who decided he wanted to sit on the papal chair and cling to Pope Francis while the patient pope was addressing a group about family values. The Christian Science Monitor reported that as the pope began his speech in front of tens of thousands of people, he seemed not the least bit disturbed, smiling and continuing with his words. It was as if, as one wire service put it, the pope were his “indulgent grandpa.”  NCR reported the story earlier.
