PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s a sight that people rarely get to see; Pope Francis loses his cool in a mishap at a Mexican stadium on Tuesday.
The pope was walking among a crowd in the Mexican city of Morelia when he stopped to greet several children. That’s when a person nearby yanked on his papal robes causing him to topple on top of a man in a wheel chair.
Video footage captured the pope scolding the person in Spanish. He said, “Don’t be selfish, don’t be selfish.”
According to CNN, an announcement was made after the incident.
“We are asking you to be careful,” the announcer said. “Please contain yourself. Pope Francis wants to greet us, but if we pile up, it will be difficult to do so.”
Some might say that was the “holiest” reprimand one could ever receive.
If you can remember, the Pope has a way with people. When the pope visited Philadelphia in September he kissed a baby with a brain tumor, who is said to be making progress.
With a track record like this, one might say this scolding was a blessing in disguise.
