An unusual scene in the Vatican: a ten-year-old boy approached Pope Francis.

He finds enthusiastic words.

Rome - A ten-year-old boy caused amusement in the Vatican on Wednesday.

At the general audience of Pope Francis, the child climbed the stage - and inspired the pontiff with his action.

According to the German press agency, the boy is said to have overcome the barriers to the spectator area and headed towards Francis.

He shook his hand, chatted briefly and made him sit next to him on an armchair - Leonardo Sapienza, the regent of the prefecture of the papal house, even had to get up for it.

According to the Vatican news portal,

Vatican News

, the boy first sat down next to Pope Francis, but then spontaneously stood up and tugged at the pontiff's headgear, the white skullcap.

He recently rejected rumors about the end of his pontificate.

Vatican scene provokes applause: Boy approaches Pope, sits down next to him and even gets a hat

The boy was obviously aiming for a special souvenir during his campaign: He kept pointing to Francis' head and wanted the white cap.

The Pope did not give the boy his pileolus, as the garment is called, but gave him a different cap.

But that's not enough: the boy also watched the employee from the State Secretariat very closely to the applause of the faithful - which threw them a little off the mark when they were reading a text.

The Pope then used the little boy's appearance to praise the boy's childlike qualities.

"Jesus says: If you do not make yourselves children, then you cannot go to the kingdom of heaven," said Francis.

“Trust yourself and approach the Lord.

Do not be afraid.

I thank this boy. "
