Pope Francis’ Angry reaction when almost pulled to the ground in Mexico

Pope Francis at the cause of an event with the Mexican audience during his visit was almost pulled to the ground by the crowds’ shoves to reach-out to the rosaries the Pontiff was distributing, these caused the Holy Father to utter tough words to the rowdy crowd when he stood back up, as he fell on a disabled boy sitting on a wheelchair in front of him.

“What's going on with you? Don't be selfish! Don't be selfish!"    Pope Francis said forcefully as he got back up.

“It’s a very human reaction, very normal… anyone in a similar situation would have reacted that way, especially after a long day of activities," Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican Press Office.

The Spokesman explained that the Holy Father before that particular event have had a very stressful day with other events, the Pope “was giving everything he had to be kind with everyone, he is pulled down from one side and started to fall – this really is something that can put you on edge." he said.

Father Federico Lombardi said after the Pope’s reaction he magically wore an honest and kind smile back-on again, welcoming all back to his circles again and the event continued in the same enthusiastic mood it started with initially.
