Pope: interrupts audience greetings by phone call

#Pope #interrupts #audience #phone #call

– VATICAN CITY, 11 AUG – Fuoriprogramma today at the end of the general audience of Pope Francis in the Paul VI Hall. Before leaving, with the usual greetings to the faithful, Pope Francis saw a mobile phone from his assistant for an urgent call. Francis therefore went away on the phone and then returned to greet the faithful with smiles and blessings.

The Vatican, when asked about the off-program, limited itself to saying that it was a private phone call and that therefore nothing can be communicated about it. (HANDLE).
