Everybody in South America wants a pope selfie.

As Pope Francis visits Ecuador, Bolivia, and Paraguay this week, he's met with crowds of cellphone waving faithful, all angling for a prized holy selfie with the holy see.

Francis, the first pope in the age of the selfie, has openly embraced the trend by pausing to pose for cellphone pics with churchgoers, clergy members and politicos alike. But some people are better at it than others.

The popemobile. Always a classic.

Near miss.

Church leaders are hip too.

Holy see lends a holy hand.

Air pope.

Yo, don't crowd my shot, Evo. 

Gettin' low.

Selfie stick. Popemobile. Nailed it.

Sure, that counts. (Meow)

Good pic, sis.

Hanging with Jesus and the pope.

Say a prayer for me.

Mmm. That sorta counts, but not really.

That definitely doesn't count.
