Pope jokes with Bulgarian bishops during 'ad limina' visit

(-JUST VIDEO-) Pope Francis received Bulgarian bishops in their "ad liminaâ? visit to the Vatican. The Pope urged them to promote a more "intense and brotherlyâ? dialogue with the Orthodox Church. He also asked their dioceses to attend the canonization of John Paul II, "the first Slavic Popecâ?. 

The gathering also had time for jokes: when one of the bishops asked the Pope to stand to his left in the photograph, Pope Francis answered that  he was afraid of being confused with "impenitent thiefâ? crucified to the left of Christ.
