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.
