Pope Francis might have had the most adorable moment of his American visit when he met a particularly remarkable child during his tour of Philadelphia.
Daniel and Dana Madden stood with their baby girl, Quinn, amongst the thousands of people who came out for the Supreme Pontiff’s ride through the city. Just as the popemobile came towards the family, Francis laughed when he saw that Quinn was dressed in complete papal regalia, hat and all.

Throwing his head back, Francis ordered the procession to stop, and asked security to bring her from her mother. Francis kissed the child, and asked his guard to relay a message to the Maddens as he waved them goodbye and continued onward.
As he handed Quinn back, the guard was heard telling the parents that the Pope commended their “great sense of humor.”
