Circus performers wow crowd during General Audience

On Wednesday's General Audience a group of circus performers wowed the crowd, as well as Pope Francis. They are a part of the Golden Circus International Festival, taking place in Rome.

The simultaneous performances included jugglers, acrobats, a unicycle and even clowns with furry ferrets. The Pope looked pleased with the performance and even clapped along to the music at times. ;

This year's edition of the festival is dedicated to Latin American performers, and one of them was donning an outfit with the Brazilian flag.

The Pope congratulated them for their performance and tasked them with conveying joy and brotherhood during their performances. ;
