VATICAN CITY, March 3 (UPI) -- Pope Francis was speaking from a window in St. Peter's Square when he misspoke and used an Italian curse word.

On the completely innocent subject of sharing one's wealth with others as Catholicism teaches, Pope Francis had this to say, "If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this [expletive]."

Pope Francis' mistake was that he used the word cazzo, which literally translates to "penis," though it is often used as an expletive. Instead, he meant to use caso, which means "case." The Pontiff recognized his mistake and immediately corrected himself.

"In this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity," he continued and recovered from the gaffe.

The Pope seems to be forgiven for the sin, with many people commenting on the viral video with, "I love you, Pope Francis!"
