In a perfect photo op, Pope Francis holds a “mini-me”, 19-month-old Daniele De Sanctis, in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican in Rome Wednesday, according to the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano. As part of Carnival or Mardi Gras season in Italy, youngsters wear costumes, so this one’s mother Paola Ciabattini dressed him like the Pope. Maybe he just got stage fright?
