Pope's blessing at the Capitol brings Boehner to tears

The moment was so touching to John Boehner, he shed a few tears.

- As Pope Francis made his way onto the West Front of the U.S. Capitol to greet thousands of people who gathered to see him Thursday, many people were a little emotional-- including House Speaker John Boehner.

Boehner joined the pope on the balcony, along with Vice President Joe Biden and others. The moment, which was quite spectacular, was obviously an emotional one for Boehner, who couldn't hold back the tears as Pope Francis made his remarks.

Pope Francis offered a blessing and a prayer from the balcony. We're quite sure Speaker Boehner wasn't the only one who teared up.
