Little boy tells pope, "I want to be a priest." - Poche - 07-31-2013

Nathan de Brito brought Pope Francis to tears during one of his motorcades through the streets of Rio de Janeiro on Friday, when he broke past barriers to deliver an important message to the Pontiff.

“Your Holiness, I want to be a priest of Christ, a representative of Christ,” de Brito whispered in the ear of Pope Francis July 26, after jumping hurdles and making his way to the Popemobile in his Brazilian national soccer team jersey.

“I am going to pray for you, but I ask you to pray for me,” Pope Francis responded, moved to tears and embracing him.

“As of today, your vocation is set.”

Onlookers noticed that de Brito did not want to leave the Holy Father. It was only after several attempts that the Pope's security entourage was able to take him off the Popemobile.

Once on the street, Nathan walked along side the Popemobile, waving to the Pontiff and blowing him kisses. One of the security guards stopped to console the boy before bringing him back to his waiting family.

God who is the author of life can bring good out of any situation.

Holy Spirit Inspired words by the Holy Father.

It reminds me of how the Little Flower broke protocal and begged Pope Leo XIII to let her enter the convent at 15.

Introibo ad altare Dei. Ad Deum qui laitificat juventutem meum.

"I will go to the altar of God. The God who gives joy to my youth."    :amen:

A topic on what Pope Francis might have meant gets nearly 150 posts.

A topic on a boy telling the pope that he wants to be a priest gets...  five.

Heck, I'm surprised no one has said: the Pope replied to the boy, "I want to be a priest someday too, that's why I'm going to have HE Williamson conditionally ordain me."

Beautiful. It can't be said better than Eschera already: "Introibo ad altare Dei. Ad Deum qui laitificat juventutem meum."

Someday, maybe this boy will save the Church.
