This is very, very moving. A must see.
Meet Nathan de Brito, the little boy who broke past barriers to run into Pope Francis’ arms on Friday in order to tell him something that moved the pontiff to tears.
They embraced on the popemobile as de Brito confided to Pope Francis, “Your Holiness, I want to be a priest of Christ, a representative of Christ.”
Pope Francis beamed at the small child in the Brazilian national soccer team jersey and told him, “I am going to pray for you, but I ask you to pray for me.” He wiped tears from his eyes as he embraced de Brito and told him, “As of today, your vocation is set.”
