What’s Pope Francis Doing With This Little Lamb? (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Why was Pope Francis recently photographed carry a lamb across his shoulders?

From the Catholic News Service:

Surrounded by cheese sellers, shoemakers and bleating, baying animals, Pope Francis immersed himself in a lively re-enactment of a special day in Bethlehem.

He even let a lamb rest on his shoulders and greeted a tiny baby named Francis, who played the part of Jesus, when he visited a live Nativity scene Jan. 6 at the Church of St. Alfonso Maria dei Liguori on the northern outskirts of Rome.
