Pope Benedict XVI is recovering from pre-Mass pandemonium this evening after a mentally-disturbed Roman woman jumped a barrier and toppled The Pontiff as he walked down the main aisle during Christmas Eve Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica on Thursday.
The 82-year-old pope was helped to his feet by aides and is unhurt, said Vatican spokesman The Rev. Ciro Benedettini.
Glad he’s okay!
