Vatican-- A young boy stole the show at St. Peter's Square over the weekend as he climbed on stage to greet Pope Francis.
The Pope was meeting catholic families from around the world as part of "family Day" celebrations.
The child left a bench to the side of the stage and walked up to the pontiff.
The boy refused to leave and at one point, wrapped his arms around Pope Francis.
Eventually, the boy sat in the papal chair as Pope Francis delivered a speech.
