Pope Francis Accidentally Drops F-Bomb During a Public Blessing

Pope Francis I, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio

We never thought in a million years that we would include the words "pope" and "F-bomb" in one sentence, and yet here we are.

Pope Francis shocked the crowd who gathered for his weekly blessing on Sunday at the Vatican when he accidentally let a swear word slip. And it was the ultimate swear word, too.

Instead of saying "caso," which means "case" in Italian, the Pope used the word "cazzo," which is the Italian equivalent of the word "f--k." Oh, my! Please stand by while we clutch our pearls and fan ourselves.

The 76-year-old Pope of the Catholic Church quickly realized his error and corrected himself, but it was too late. He's the first Pope in history to drop the F-bomb in public. Probably. Most likely. We think.

Here is the part of the speech translated to English:

"If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this f--k…in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity."

We think he should have kept the swear word in there so it would read like "in this f--king case." That would really hammer the point home.

Watch the Pope's flub below:

To err is human, y'all.
