Pope Francis and “the boy in yellow”

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 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).

It’s so nice to have a REAL person as the Pope. I hope others learn from him.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
