Daily News reporter Stephanie Farr was standing in the crowd Saturday afternoon as Pope Francis rode toward Independence Hall to deliver a speech about the value of immigration, and she shot this video as he stopped to kiss two babies presented to him by members of his security detail.


One of those babies was 6-week-old Luke Uebbing of Denver, Colo. When Uebbing’s mother, Jenny, was asked what she hopes the blessing from Pope Francis to her baby will mean for the child’s future, she replied:

“Maybe he’ll be in white someday.”
