In a rare sight of public agitation, Pope Francis lost his composure as he greeted a crowd of worshippers in Morella, Mexico.
Pope Francis, who is usually calm and accommodating with his admirers, clearly lost his temper with a person who pulled on him so hard that he fell onto a child on a wheel chair. Reuters said
When the devotee grabbed him by his cassock and wouldn’t let go, it caused the Pontiff to fall into a wheelchair-bound man.
The Pope sternly told the man in Spanish “don’t be selfish.”
Pope Francis recovered and kissed the man on the head following the incident. He waved to people in the open-air gathering for a few more minutes after the incident before leaving.
The Pope went to Mexico on Friday and wrapped up his trip on Wednesday.
It is his second trip to North America since becoming the head of the Catholic Church in 2013. He visited Cuba and the United States in September.
