During General Audience, the pope meets... a mini pope!

Before beginning the General Audience this Wednesday, Pope Francis made his usual route to the stage in the Paul VI Audience Hall.

While greeting the people who were waiting for him, he saw this surprise among the crowd. It was a child dressed as a pope, whom Pope Francis could not help but take in his arms and speak to him for a few minutes.

If there's any doubt it was one of the funniest moments from the morning, the images of these two "popes" speak for themselves.
