Pope Visits Children's Hospital

From ABC News: Pope scares child who mistook him for doctor:

The Pope's white robes scared a young boy who mistook him for a doctor when he
visited a children's hospital on Friday.

The child began crying when
78-year-old Pope Benedict approached his bed in the cardiology ward of the
Bambino Gesu (Baby Jesus) hospital near the Vatican.

'It's the white,' a
nurse explained to the Pope. 'He can't take anymore of these white coats.'
