    In this photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis holds a green parrot named Amore that was offered to him by his owner, Francesco Lombardi, during his weekly general audience in St. Peter square at the Vatican Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014. After his dove release went terribly awry on Sunday, Francis gladly blessed the parrot and took the bird for a few seconds on his finger. The scene wasn’t so peaceful on Sunday, when children flanking Francis set free two white doves from his studio window overlooking St. Peter’s Square. The birds were soon attacked by a crow and seagull. (AP Photo/L'Osservatore Romano, ho)
