Pope Francis and Holy Communion Children

This is a beautiful video of Pope Francis as he bows to accept the blessing of First Communion children as they sing to him in Spanish the Blessing of St. Francis and afterwards greets them. If only I could adopt this attitude to everyone I meet !!

May 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.
May the Lord bless you!

and this extract from Psalm 8 comes to mind too...

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth,
You have set your glory above the heavens.

From the lips of children and infants

You have ordained praise because of Your enemies,

to silence the foe and the avenger.
