{www.tori.gn} – This is the shocking moment Pope Francis lost his footing and fell down during holiest mass in Poland.

It was shock on the faces of people as Pope Francis fell down during holy mass in front of millions as he visited Czestochowa, Poland.

The 79-year-old pope, who hails from Argentina, was walking on a stage when he suddenly fell and was quickly helped to his feet by other religious figures. He subsequently took to his seat, continued the Mass and read his homily normally.

Francis suffers from a medical condition called sciatica, in which pain sometimes severely affects his leg and lower back.

He is on a five-day visit to Poland and was visiting the country’s holiest shrine in the city of Czestochowa, which is in the south of the country.
