— -- As Pope Francis drove through the papal parade in Philadelphia, one special spectator caught his eye -- a baby girl wearing a pope costume.

Francis laughed when he saw Quinn Madden on Saturday, and in an adorable moment caught on video, a security agent grabbed the girl and brought her to the pope. Francis kissed Quinn and whispered to a guard before the agent returned Quinn to her parents.

"He told his security guard to tell us that we have a great sense of humor," Quinn's dad, Daniel Madden, told ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.
