The Pope visits an island. The island is in Italy. The Pope listens to people. A boy comes to the Pope.

The boy is on stage with the Pope. Security tell the boy to leave. The boy stays. He doesn’t leave.

The Pope doesn’t mind the boy. The media like this too. The media talk about this a lot. At one moment, the boy touches the Pope.

Difficult words:

stage (area which is higher and an area where somebody talks)
