Little Boy Brings Pope to Tears When He Tells Him He Wants to Be a Representative of Christ
I am not Catholic but I’m fascinated with the Pope, especially this new Pope Francis. He is known as the Pope of the people and I think this video shows just how loved and approachable he really is.
The Pope is currently in Rio for World Youth Day. As he rode down the street in the Popemobile a young boy (Nathan de Brito) runs to the vehicle to say something to his Holiness. The boy is in tears as he is lifted up by security to talk with the Pope.
Although this video is in Portuguese you can clearly see there is a bond between the two and the boy is clearly overcome with emotion and does not want to leave the Pope.
When Nathan greets the Pope he tells him “Your Holiness, I want to be a priest of Christ, a representative of Christ.” The Pope responds,”I am going to pray for you, but I ask you to pray for me. As of today, your vocation is set.”
I have a feeling we may see this young man doing great things in the future.There is something in his heart that is so strong he is overcome by it and he has now been blessed by the Pope. What more motivation to continue your dream could you possibly need. He will forever remember that moment in time.
