How awesome is this Rome Reports video of a teenager “test driving” the Popemobile?
The boy’s father, Celestino di Tullio, told The Associated Press he choked up when Francis approached his son: “The pope saw him, embraced him. Then Alberto pointed to the car, and so he brought him up!”
Was the Argentinian national soccer jersey Alberto was wearing the key to the invite? No definitive proof, but I’ll hedge my bets and remember what to wear if I find myself within spitting distance of the Pope’s car!
