Pope carries lamb on shoulders during visit to nativity scene

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The head of the Roman Catholic Church delighted worshippers on Monday when he carried a lamb on his shoulders at a nativity scene. Pope Francis was visiting a nativity reenactment at the Church of St. Alfonso Maria dei Liguori in a Rome suburb when a 'shepherd' placed the animal around his neck. The pontiff seemed delighted by the gesture. Even the noisy squeals of a pig raised a smile from the pope. The nativity event took place in celebration of the Epiphany - the day when the Three Wise Men visited the baby Jesus.
