(Q24N) ‘Don’t be selfish. What’s happened to you, don’t be selfish‘ (‘No seas egoísta. Qué te pasó, no seas egoísta‘) were the words shouted by Pope Francis, on a walkabout at a stadium in Morelia, Mexico, when his robe was pulled and he fell on to a man in a wheelchair despite guards asking people to move back.


The Pope made the audience members aware of his irritation. However, he regained his composure and waved at the crowds for a few more moments before moving on.

The pope was knocked off-balance, and security guards had to help him straighten up. .

“You don’t do that!’ (Eso no se hace!) the pope said, according to the Associated Press.

Some are attributing the flash anger – an angry look and raising his voice – by the Pope to accumulated stress and travel of a long trip.
