According to the Vatican, as many as 50,000 people attended the first World Children’s Day in Rome.

They came from all over the world and brought Pope Francis a list of questions on how to make the world a better place.

The pope answered them by encouraging each boy and girl to shake each other’s hands, calling it “a gesture of peace.”
