Pope Francis was a little like St. Francis this week.
St. Francis of Assisi was canonized as the patron saint of animals. Pope Francis was recently photobombed by a motley crew of canines. Pretty similar.

Dogs abounded in St. Peter's Square outside the famed St. Peter's Basilica Wednesday. They sat, they stood, and they smiled in anticipation of the pope's arrival.
But Pope Francis seemed unaware of some pooches creeping behind him when the camera flashed.
Er, not creeping really. Smiling. Really, really smiling.
