Pope Francis, who made Philadelphia the final stop on his 10-day tour of USA last weekend, was thrilled to spot a miniature version of himself in the crowd lining either side of the city’s Ben Franklin Parkway as he drove past.
Baby Quinn Madden’s mother Dana had dressed her in an infant-sized replica of the papal robes, complete with the mitre for Quinn’s little head. In a video posted on Facebook, little Quinn is held up by her parents above the crowd to get the Pope’s attention.
Can’t believe Quinn met the Pope. Truly an amazing experience! We love You Pope Francis!

Pope Francis is used to being presented with small babies to kiss on the head and bless by enthusiastic parents.
In footage filmed by Mr Madden and posted to Facebook, Francis can be seen singling out Quinn by pointing towards her and laughing at her outfit.
