Pope Francis has endeared himself to many people all over the world following a dramatic encounter that happened between him and a little girl with down syndrome.
In the story shared by a Catholic online publication, the beautiful little girl with Down syndrome, got up from her seat during a papal audience and went towards Pope Francis during ministration.
The security guards quickly moved in to take her back to her mother.
The Pope stopped everyone and said to the girl, “come sit next to me.”The girl then sat down near him and the Holy Father continued to preach while holding hands with the little girl.
