HOLY FATHER POPE FRANCIS FALLS DOWN. IS HE OK? ~ :: Habari Duniani

Poland: Pope Francis missed a step and fell to the ground Thursday as he walked on an open-air platform to celebrate Mass at Poland's holiest shrine of Jasna Gora, home to the Black Madonna, in the southern city of Czestochowa.
In a dramatic moment, the 79-year-old Francis, walking deep in thought in his long robe, did not notice a step down and fell to the ground before the altar. Priests around him rushed to help him up and straightened his robe.
Asked if Francis had suffered any ill effects from the fall, a Vatican spokesman, Greg Burke, said "the pope is fine."
"He is in good condition. He did not even complain at all. He never said a word," Depo said. "Also the homily showed that the pope has strength and this strength he gets from the people."
It has become common knowledge that our 79-year-old pope suffers from poor health and often asks the faithful to pray for him. Pope Francis suffers from sciatica, which sometimes sends a shooting pain down his lower back to his leg. In November 2015, the pontiff was also reported falling more than once in a short period.

Following Mass, the Pope jumped in his popemobile and traveled through crowds of cheering people.
