(USA TODAY) -- A little boy couldn't resist coming up on stage with the Pope - and of course, the sweet moment is all caught on camera.

The boy ran up to Pope Francis in front of a crowd of an estimated 150,000 people in Vatican City during an event about families. The Pope greets him with a pat on the head. The boy wanders around in front of the podium while the Pope speaks to the massive crowd.

The pope's aides and several cardinals tried to persuade the boy away - one even tried to lure him with candy - but instead the boy hugged the Pontiff's leg, and eventually sat in the papal chair. Pope Francis seemed amused and patted the boy's cheek and head, continuing on with his speech.
