Pope Francis Makes A New BFF As A Little Boy Wanders On Stage During His Speech!

Filed under: Cuteness!Cute Kidz

child wanders on stage while pope francis delivers speech

Holy guacamole, this is just too dang cute!!

This weekend, thousands gathered at St. Peter's Square as Pope Francis was set to deliver a speech at the Vatican, and a lucky group of kids had front row seats for the events!

But one young boy wanted to get an even closer look and actually wandered onto the stage!

A group of workers attempted to escort the little one back to his seat, but he was NOT ready to leave! And the best part is, the Pope didn't seem to mind!

In fact, the youngster stood right by his side as the pontiff delivered his speech, and even gave him a big ole' hug! Clearly amused, the Pope patted him on the head throughout the event and even let him sit on his Pope chair!

We're not exactly sure who the lucky little guy is, but we do know this is one of the cutest things to ever go down at the Vatican!

Ch-ch-check out more from the adorable moment …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Usual duties of a Pope include delivering Mass at the Vatican, riding dirty on the Pope-mobile, and, of course, rocking their enormous cone hat. But now, you can officially add "being awesome" to the list.

Aboard the papal aircraft today, Pope Francis told a press conference something that no previous Pope has ever said before. When asked about gay people serving in the clergy, Pope Francis had this to say:

But we never asked his stance on The Dark Knight Rises!

Apparently the Vatican has strong feelings on the subject! The Pontifical Council for Social Communications tweeted:

Filed under: PolitikBasketballDennis Rodman

dennis rodman vatican insane north korea pope kim jong un somebody stop him

That is, if the new Pope even cares one ounce about a retired basketball player who loves Kim Jong Un!

As you can tell with all the fresh threats of destroying the U.S. and invalidating armistices with South Korea, North Korea is in a MUCH better place now that Dennis Rodman has visited! Now, he wants to fix the Catholic Church!

Shocker! Surprise!

The Vatican is pissed that last week's US presidential election caused the approval of gay marriage in three states, and is now vowing to use it's power of prayer political and social influence to fight BACK against… um… people legally expressing their love we guess!

Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican's chief spokesman, expressed on Vatican Radio:

Madonna May Be Looking For A New Home In Rome!

Filed under: MadonnaFor Reals Estate

She hasn't purchased any property yet, but Madonna may be moving to Rome in the future.

The Material Girl, who is of Italian descent, has reportedly been eying up a luxury villa and a penthouse apartment in the Eternal City.

The 54-year-old already divides her time between New York City and London, but who wouldn't want a Roman retreat too?

We totally see our gurl living in the magical city, even if it pisses off the Vatican (wouldn't be the first time), so we hope she does whatever makes her happy!

Anne Hathaway's Criminal Ex Set To Be Released From Prison…And Deported!

Raffaello Follieri free prison deportation

Wow! We can't believe it's already been this long!

You may recall that before Anne Hathaway became involved with Adam Shulman in 2008, she dated Raffaello Follieri, the con-man who was arrested on fraud charges after stealing millions from investors in a scheme in which he posed as the Vatican's point man on real estate!

Remember? Although poor girl wasn't charged, she had her own journals confiscated by the FBI during the investigation, and even had to give back jewelry he had given her as gifts!

Well, after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy and serving nearly four years behind bars, Follieri is expected to be released from prison tomorrow, and will be handed over to federal officials to be deported!

According to a spokesman for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement:
