Forget about protocol! Cloistered nuns steal the show when they meet Pope Francis

(-VIDEO ONLY-) Cloistered nuns from seven convents in Naples, got a special treat over the weekend. Their request to temporarily leave their respective convents and see Pope Francis during a local visit, was granted.  When the Archbishop of Naples told the Pope that he had approved their request, it didn't take long for the nuns to steal the show.  "Later, later. Where are you going? Later! Look at this... It's a good thing they're cloistered nuns, can you imagine if they weren't? They're taking over. Sister! Sister! Sister! We have to move on. We can't lose any more time.â?  AC/KLH  CTV JM -PR Up: MPI
