Woman nearly faints after greeting the pope

After the pope delivered a catechesis to the homeless on Friday morning in Paul VI Audience Hall, he spent time personally greeting each and every person present. However, some were so excited, they could not contain themselves. ; After shaking Pope Francis' ;hand, this young woman was so giddy with joy. She began waving and was in such shock that she fell backwards, nearly fainting! Good thing the two men behind her were there to catch her and lift her back up to see the pope once more. ; MB RR -FL -PR Up:MB
