14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A child is lifted up by Pope Francis' security detail for a kiss and blessing from the Pope himself.

This photo took place during an audience at the Vatican. Pope Francis drove through the crowd of thousands in his bullet-proof car, surrounded by really intense security. The Pope hardly ever leaves his vehicle, and when he sees children in the crowd, he points them out to members of his security detail so that they can carry the child and bring him or her to the vehicle, where the Pope gives them his blessing before they are handed back to their parents.
