The Pope's surprise visit hours before flying to Poland

The members of the Peter Pan Onlus association never would have imagined that after the Mass at St. Peter's Basilica they were going to have a very special visitor. ;

Pope Francis came by to greet the children and the volunteers of this association one by one.

The Pope also said a Hail Mary with them at Saint John Paul II's tomb. ;

The awestruck group did not hesitate to take pictures with the Pope during his brief visit, before he left for the airport.
