( ONLY VIDEO ) A surprise awaited at the end of the general audience on Wednesday, when a group of circus performers approached Pope Francis.
To the beat of a contagious melody, they set out to do stunts, acrobatics and tightrope. And the Pope, who looked delighted, thanked them with this impromptu speech:
"You are all creators of beauty, you create beauty and beauty is good for the soul, beauty brings us closer to God. Behind the beauty,shows the many hours of training. Go ahead, continue... And thank you.”
