Pope Francis, currently on a visit to the United States, made an unscheduled stop at an airport in Philadelphia on Saturday to bless a boy with cerebral palsy who he had spotted in the crowd.
The boy is Michael Keating, 10, the son of a high school band director.
On seeing the boy, the pope ordered his motorcade to stop, walked over to his wheelchair, caressed his face and then kissed his head. He also greeted the boy's parents, who were visibly moved by the pope's gesture.
