Little boy steals pope’s thunder during weekly papal audience

Vatican City /  The pope’s weekly audience on Wednesday was interrupted when a boy escaped from the stands and jumped onto the stage and started to play where the pontiff was addressing his audience.

The boy, who quickly became the star of Wednesday’s papal audience, had been sitting on the front benches when he broke away from his mother and took to the stage to explore the Swiss guards’ uniform, taking a special interest in the guards’ gloves and halberd, a pole-like weapon.

Pope Francis, who was clearly amused by the young gatecrasher, turned to Archbishop Georg Gänswein smiling and said: “he is Argentinian….undisciplined.”

The child ran freely on across the stage for a while after a failed attempt from his mother and a girl to get him to sit down again.

The pontiff told the public the child could not talk but knew how to communicate and express himself well, and that he was free.

And this has made me wonder: am I free? Am I free before God? Before God, we should all be as free as children in front of their parents.” (November 28, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
