During his weekly blessing from the Vatican, his all holiness accidentally said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the ‘F-dash-dash-dash’ word!” Well…kind of. If you’re an ‘Merican speaking person, you probably would not have heard it that way. The prayer was given in Italian, which is not the Pope’s native tongue. The word “F—” or “cazzo” is extremely similar to the Italian word “caso” or “case”, which is what the Pope was trying to convey. The Pontiff quickly corrected himself though. Praise the Lord.
Here is the blessing 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*ck [pause], in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity.”
