    TEMPO.CO, Vatican - Pope Francis returned to news headline, showing more inspiring compassion. In the Year of Faith with His Holiness event at Vatican this week, a boy jumped in the stage when the Pope was delivering his sermont.

    Herald Sun reported the six-year-old orphan Carlos seemed a little besotted with the leader of the world's Catholics. Other pontiffs might have sent the lad away, but Pope Francis showed a compassionate sight, acting like a proud father rather than a distant public figure by giving a pat on his head.

    The photobombing boy Carlos was born in Colombia and has been adopted by an Italian family last year. Several cardinals tried to usher him away, even using the classic lolly-lure trick. Yet Carlos remained around, even sitting in His Holliness seat, a view that is quite unlikely but touchy indeed.
