Quickly becoming everyone’s favorite Pope, good ol’ Francis took another opportunity to reach out and show people how cuddly and common-man he is by stopping to let an old friend ride with him in the Pope-mobile. The Reverend Fabian Baez, who knows the pope from Argentinian Archdiocese days, was given a special seat at the Pope’s speech which addressed the importance of remembering one’s own baptism.
In the video you see Father Fabian reaching for his cell phone in preparation for that #selfiewithThePopeSCORE you know is coming next.
He later tweeted gleefully in Spanish, “I will change my bio. The poor priest who took the popemobile today with #PopeFrancis.”
