The pope accidentally said the F-word.
Native Spanish speaker Pope Francis, using Italian in his weekly Vatican address Sunday, said the obscene "cazzo," which Italians often utter as an F-bomb, instead of "caso," which means "case." He quickly corrected himself and moved on.
Speaking to thousands in St. Peter's Square, Francis says: "If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this f--- [pause], in this case, the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity," according to a translation by Italy's The Local.
It should be noted that while "cazzo" is technically a vulgar term for penis, it is often employed as the F-word, according to several dictionaries.
In either "caso," the pope unintentionally swore. Even guys at the top make mistakes.
All is forgiven, Holy Father!
