A not so private audience with Pope Francis

Pope Francis delivered a message to families in Saint Peter's Square over the weekend, but it was a boy from the audience who ended up stealing the show. The little guy apparently wanted to be part of the action. He jumped right up to be next to the pope and refused to leavethe pontiff’s  side, even after an aide offered him candy. The pope took it all in stride. Randi Kaye reports.

    I once saw a picture of Pope Pius Xll getting into a car with his driver kneeling and bowing at his presence. I am sure happy the Pope is not longer a god or Roman Emperor. The Pope puts his pants on just like us. This is a cool story. The Pope is human.

    Where were the kid's parents? Who thought this was cute. I thought it was obnoxious. The parents should have picked him up and taken him back to his seat.
