WATCH: Pope Scolds Overzealous Crowd “¡No seas egoísta!”

Aleteia - published on 02/16/16

Mexican affection gets a little too fervent

Unable to read lips, we nevertheless get the impression that His Holiness Pope Francis has made it clear that there is a line, and it has been crossed.

UPDATE: From our Spanish edition, we get a translation:

“¡Por favor! ¿Qué te pasó? ¡No seas egoísta! ¡No seas egoísta!”

“Please! What is happening to you? Don’t be selfish! Don’t be selfish!”

You tell ’em, Papa.
