CWN Editor's Note: After a 10-year-old disabled boy ran up to Pope Francis during his October 20 general audience, the Pope praised the child’s “freedom and spontaneity” and gave him his zucchetto.

The Pope added, “Jesus tells us, ‘If you do not become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of God.’ It is the courage to be close to the Lord, to be open to the Lord, to not be afraid of the Lord. I thank this child for giving this lesson to all of us.”
