Pope Francis Accidentally Drops F-Bomb During Sunday Blessing [VIDEO]
I have a newfound respect for Pope Francis.
Not that I didn’t have one to begin with. I admire his austerity, his non-judgmental attitude toward gays; and now for his being caught up in a very human moment.
Dropping the equivalent of the “f-bomb” during Sunday’s service before the masses at the Vatican.
The pontiff was speaking from a window in St Peter’s Square when he accidentally muddled the Italian word “caso” — which means “case” — with “cazzo” — which can translate to “f–k” or sometimes “s–t.”
“If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this f–k,” he said, before pausing.
“In this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity,” he continued after correcting his error.
Footage of Sunday’s gaffe went online and has since gone viral, according to The Local.
But the popular Argentine Pope appears to have been forgiven for the sin, with many commenters laughing the incident off.
“He wanted to say, ‘in this case’ — it’s a simple mistake made by a foreigner reading Italian, nothing more,” one viewer wrote.
Another added: “Great Pope Francis, I love you!”

Any other pope probably would have fainted.
Not Pope Francis.
Truly the people’s Pope! With the tongue to match!
Have you ever uttered an f-bomb or something like it at an inappropriate time?
