Pope Francis receives a puppet... of himself!

As thousands of tourists reached for Pope Francis during Wednesday's general audience, there was one object in particular that caught the Pope's eye. It was when he was greeted by a miniature version of himself... as a puppet. ; He stopped and played with the puppet, while judging whether or not it actually looked like him. ; With a huge smile on his face, he then proceeded to take a selfie with the gift-giver, as she reached her selfie-stick out into the crowd. ; MB RR -VM -PR Up:MB
