(Rome) -- The Pope continues to break the rules when it comes to papal protocol. Pope Francis spotted a familiar face in the crowd at St. Peter's Square yesterday. When he saw Argentinian priest Fabian Baez, the Pope ordered his car stopped and brought Baez onto the Popemobile. Baez rode around the square with the Pope and was given a special seat to hear the Pontiff's speech to the crowd. Baez served as a priest in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, which Pope Francis led before his elevation to head of the Roman Catholic Church.
