Pope Francis is hip to the trends of our time.

The popular pontiff posed for a selfie with this boy during the pope's visit to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, as part of his trip to the US. It's instantly the best photo the boy will ever be associated with in his lifetime.

The pope was more than happy to oblige other kids, as well.

Heck, Pope Francis even appeared in a selfie without realizing it:

The pope's visit to the States hardly marks the first time he's indulged in the selfie craze, either. Back in June, he appeared in one with a boy in St. Peter's Square.
