Don't Even Think About Kissing The Pope's Ring!

 

Footage has emerged of Pope Francisrepeatedly pulling his hand away as the faithful attempt to perform a traditional sign of respect.

The Pope was greeting worshippers at the Italian pilgrimage site dedicated to the Virgin Mary at Loreto on Monday.

He appeared reluctant to allow the laity to pay him the respect of kissing his ring, a sacred symbol of the Pope's union to the Church.

Video shows him smiling politely as devotees kneel before him but as each of them attempts to kiss the ring he quickly slips his hand away.
