Pope Francis drops F-bomb in Italian during Sunday Angelus

See also

Pope Francis mistakenly dropped the F-bomb in Italian during his Sunday Angelus according to "The Local - Italy's News in English". Instead of saying “caso”, or case in English, he bumbled “cazzo", which translates to f#*k in English.

The Pope's Sunday Angelus was an appeal for the Ukraine and the Christian fraternity, however in a mince of words, Pope Francis’ blessing ended up on YouTube on March 2 and has received over 30,000 hits thus far. The Local translated the Pontiff’s message to English where he slipped in the curse word to the masses that gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this f#@k [pause], in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity.

Pope Francis bounced back from his mistake and continued with his prayers for the Ukraine with a message for the upcoming Lenten season.

YouTube comments ranged from applause, validating that the humble Pope Francis is a man who makes mistakes to rude and inappropriate comments, which called the Holy Father ignorant names.

The YouTube video with Pope Francis’ Italian F-bomb can be viewed above.
