SEE: Pope Francis trips and falls at Holy Mass in Poland

By Jeffrey Owusu-Mensah

Pope Francis tripped and fell over as he arrived for Holy Mass at the Jasna Gora shrine in front of millions of people watching around the world.

The 79-year-old Pontiff who arrived in Poland on Wednesday and will be touring various religious and cultural locations, was walking towards the altar to celebrate a mass at the southern Black Madonna shrine of Czestochowa to mark the 1,150th anniversary of the Baptism of Poland, when he took a huge tumble and fell.

A group of priests quickly helped him back to his feet just before the mass began.  Despite the fall, he got back to his feet and continued with the mass.
