Child runs on stage during Pope Francis' General Audience: “This one is brave!”

During his General Audience, a child ran on stage to be close to Pope Francis as he greeted the crowd. 

After his catechesis on the value of old age, the Pope said: 

In the Audience, we talked about dialogue between the old and young. This one has been brave, and remains calm!

The young boy stayed by the Pope's side as he blessed the crowd, and even received a special papal blessing himself.
