Pope Francis Apologizes For Slapping Woman’s Hand

Pope Francis has apologized for slapping a woman’s hand as he greeted pilgrims at the Vatican on New Year’s Eve.

In his new year message to a packed St Peter’s Square, the pontiff admitted that he also loses his patience sometimes. He referred to the act as being a bad example.

Pope Francis said;

“Women are sources of life. Yet they are continually insulted, beaten, raped, forced to prostitute themselves and to suppress the life they bear in the womb,” the Pontiff told worshipers gathered at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican on Wednesday.

“Every form of violence inflicted upon a woman is a blasphemy against God, who was born of a woman.

“I apologise for the bad example yesterday … sometimes even I lose patience.”

Recall that the viral video showed a woman grabbing his hand and yanking him towards her. The upset Pope slapped the woman’s hand in an attempt to extricate himself.
