They came with white gowns, yellow shirts, orange noses, and colorful balls. These clowns came in their work clothes, and they had a special mission: see the Pope.

These young Italians belong to the group Antas Onlus. They're charged with bringing joy to Roman hospitals. They lighten up hard times for the sick.

"We are a clown therapy association. We work in Roman hospitals, residences, and homes. We gave him a red nose and he kindly took it and a hat made of balls that we had made.”

 And here is proof of their success. It's a moment the cameras captured that they can keep forever.

Antas Onius
"He is a special Pope. That's it, special from all points of view. He is close to all, even the small ones...Even those who are not Catholic feel close to this Pope.”

Getting to know the Pope was an experience that they'll likely never forget, as they continue bringing joy to those who need it.
