Two kids approach Pope Francis during General Audience and sit on stage with him

Two children approached Pope Francis during his General Audience. The Pope drew a listen from their willingness to come up to him without any hesitation, and later invited them to sit on stage with them.

Before saying that which I have prepared, I'd like to draw attention to these two children that came here. They did not ask permission, they did not say “I'm afraid.” They came here directly. That is how we should be with God, direct, they have given us an example of how to behave with God, with the Lord, go forward, he waits for us. It was good for me to see the faith of these two children, it was an example for all of us, that is how we should approach the Lord, with freedom. Thank you.

Come, here, sit here, This one is brave.

You, sit here. The two brave ones of the day.
