Pope gives two school children a ride on board the Popemobile

(-VIDEO ONLY-) Two Italian school boys can boast what few others can, riding on board the Popemobile with Pope Francis. Before the start of Wednesday's General Audience at St. Peter's Square, the Pope rode around the crowd, but stopped when he came across a group of Italian schoolchildren. ; He stepped off, and greeted the enthusiastic children. The Pope then asked who among them would like to go join him on board. ; In the end, he chose two boys. Security helped them jump the barriers, and escorted them on board the Popemobile. They rode with the Pope for about five minutes, as he continued greeting the crowd. RCA CTV VM -PR Up: AFP
