VATICAN CITY, April 16 (UPI) -- Pope Francis became even more popular when he stopped his car after Palm Sunday Mass and gave two 11-year-olds a ride around St. Peter's Square.

The Pope was making his way through the crowded square when he hopped out to pose for pictures and offered a group of 5th graders a ride around the square in the popemobile.

One of the boys said, "it was the ride of a lifetime."
