Pope Francis apologizes for slapping woman's hand, admits he set bad example

The Washington Times reports:


Pope Francis apologized Wednesday after a now-viral video showed him slapping the hand of a woman who grabbed him in St. Peter's Square on New Year's Eve.

A video that spread across social media on Tuesday showed Pope Francis greeting worshippers as he made his way to the nativity scene in Vatican City. At one point in the video, a woman grabbed the pope's hand and yanked him over to her. Visibly irate, the pope slapped the woman's hand to loosen her grip.
