Soon after arriving at the airport in Philadelphia on Saturday, Pope Francis brought his departing motorcade to a halt to kiss and bless a young boy in a wheelchair. Ten-year-old Michael Keating suffers from cerebral palsy and is the son of the band director of a Catholic high school that was performing at the welcoming for the pope. The moment was also captured on video.
