Pope Francis, leader of the Roman Catholic Church, was captured in a viral video angrily smacking the hands of a lady who gripped his hands while he was happily greeting children and pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square on Tuesday December 31st.
In the video, the 83-year-old pope, can be seen making his way to the Nativity scene at the center of Vatican City when a lady suddenly grabbed his hand and drew him closer to herself as he tried to walk away from the crowd.
He became visibly angry and slapped off the woman’s hand to free himself from the woman’s grip, even as he angrily shouted at the unknown lady.
It is not clear what the lady was trying to tell the Pope but she can be seen making a sign of the cross before grabbing the Pope’s hand.
