Pope bows to receive blessing of children

I challenge you to not tear up as you watch this tender video clip.  Pope Francis bows to accept the blessing of these young First Communion children as they sing the Blessing of St. Francis:

The Lord bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.
The Lord bless you!

Watch after they are done singing, how tenderly he interacts with these young people.  Just beautiful.  What a pastor we have in our Holy Father!
