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?
