In the middle of the Pope’s weekly General Audience a child walked on stage to ask Pope Francis for his zuchetto, the white cap worn by popes.

The Vatican staff gave him one and the young boy left the stage with the precious gift.

The Pope later reflected on the event and said, “I think about what Jesus said about the spontaneity and freedom of children, when this child had the freedom to come up to me and move around as if he were at home. Jesus tells all of us, if you are not like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
