Newsweek - 03-26


Pope Francis was adamant he did not want the Catholic faithful who approached him after he said mass on Monday to kiss his papal ring. Footage of the post-service meet-and-greet at the Loreto basilica, near Ancona in Italy, showed the pontiff forcefully pull his hand away each time someone made a move toward the ring that he wears on his right hand.
