WASHINGTON - "Selfies" aren't just for the young — the pope is getting in on the photo trend, too.
On Wednesday, Pope Francis posed for a selfie with a group of young people who visited the Vatican. He snapped the photo inside St. Peter's Basilica with the group from the Italian Diocese of Piacenza and Bobbio who came to Rome for a pilgrimage, according to the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano.
The pontiff had an audience of about 500 young people during a private event.
