Pope gets unusual gift during Maltese audience

Vatican Pope Malta


VATICAN CITY — Like his papal predecessors, Pope Francis receives all kinds of official gifts from visiting dignitaries: plaques, religious icons and limited-edition books.

On Friday, he received something rather unique from little Luca Manconi, the 3-year-old grandson of Maltese President George Abela, who tagged along for his grandfather's audience with the pope. When Luca and his parents joined Abela's delegation at the end of the 20-minute private meeting, he presented Francis with a little plastic dinosaur.

Francis seemed utterly charmed by Luca and his 2-year-old cousin Georgia-Mae, taking them both by the hand and walking to his chair. He also gave a tender kiss to Luca's 6-week-old brother, Matteo.

Abela end his five-year term as Malta's figurehead president April 4.

Plastic dinosaurs are pretty amazing when you're a 3 year old, plastic dinosaurs are like your prized possession
This dinosaur was likely a Restorationist - does the warm welcome by Francis indicate some change in position, or is this just some political play?
Dinosaurs are cool.

The real question is whether or not His Holiness would ever judge a dinosaur, and what his answer would mean in terms of the morality of homosexual sex. LOL
