The near-accident occurred when Bergoglio was making his usual ride aboard the open white mobile to greet the hundred thousand faithful gathered at Suhrawardy Udyan Park in Dhaka, where he celebrated mass and ordained 16 new priests.
The wooden pole, which supported an electric wire, began to sway - perhaps under the thrust of the crowd at the edges of the road. A few moments before the arrival of the Pope-mobile, it tilted and threatened to crash on the street.
The faithful present started shouting and Francis’ escort rushed to hold back the pole, preventing it from bashing down on the Pope’s car, which is equipped with plexiglass roof.
I don’t think it is Our Lady or the angels protecting Francis. Something tells me it is an entirely different ........let’s just say.....entity that is protecting the pope of mercy.
The pole is very small, and would not have hurt anyone had it fallen.
