Woman Jumps Barriers in St. Peter’s Basilica & Knocked Down Pope Benedict XVI
Here is one sure fire way for a ticket to hell.
A woman jumped the barriers in St. Peter’s Basilica and knocked down Pope Benedict XVI. The Pope was in the process of walking down the aisle to begin Christmas Mass. Following the incident, Pope Benedict XVI resumed his walk to the Basilica’s main altar and then began the Mass.

A woman jumped the barriers in St. Peter’s Basilica and knocked down Pope Benedict XVI as he walked down the main aisle to begin Christmas Eve Mass on Thursday, a Vatican spokesman said.
Rev. Ciro Benedettini said the 82-year-old Pope quickly got up and was unhurt. As the Pope’s procession was making its way toward the main altar gasps rang out through the public and a commotion could be seen among the clergymen surrounding Benedict. The procession came to a halt and bodyguards rushed to the trouble spot.
The woman who pushed the pope appeared to be mentally unstable and had been arrested by Vatican police.
Pope Benedict XVI Attacked During Christmas Eve Mass
The 82-year-old pope quickly got up and was unhurt, said a Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Ciro Benedettini. Footage aired on Italy’s RAI state TV showed a woman dressed in a red jumper vaulting over the wooden barriers and rushing the pope before being swarmed by bodyguards.
Merry Christmas, eh? Sadly the holiday’s do bring out the psychosis in people.
UPDATE I: The Gateway Pundit has some more video of the woman dressed in a red jump suit attacking the Pope.
