A special surprise visit!

Pope Francis surprises the children participating in a Vatican-sponsored summer camp with a personal visit. By Vatican News:
The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, released the information on Monday evening that this morning, a little after 9:00, the Holy Father visited the children participating in Estate Ragazzi (Summer Kids Camp) that is taking place inside Vatican City State. The children were eating breakfast in Paul VI Hall when the Pope came.
Pope Francis visited each table, conversing with the children. He also visited the play areas set up inside the Hall. A little while later, sitting down with the children, the Pope encouraged them to make new friends. "People who only know how to have fun by themselves are selfish. You have to be together, with friends, to have a good time." Finally, before returning to Santa Marta around 10:00, he greeted the people managing the camp and thanked them for their work. 
Well! What a lovely surprise for those kids! (...nearly as exciting as Fr Frank popping into Confirmation classes?)
Apart, yet together. #ChurchAtHome
