The Pope met with them while they were flying kites.

"Applause for the Pope.”

Afterward, they gave him gifts and spoke with him. Pope Francis was interested to find out about them.

"Are you tired from the trip?”
"No, yes.”
"And are you tired? What makes you tired from the trip? No sleep! Are you sleepy? Well, then come here and you can sleep on the carpet.”  

The Pope then explained to the children that if they follow their dreams, they can go very far and can even reach Our Lady.

"With these dreams, you can go very, very far?”
"Yes!”
"How far?”
"Everywhere!”
"And can you get to God?”
"Yes!”
"And with your dreams can you pray?”
"Yes!”
"And even in your dreams can you pray to Our Lady?”
"Yes!”

The Pope also explained that dreaming opens the door to happiness. He asked them to always keep their hearts open.
