During his weekend trip to Naples, Pope Francis was mobbed by a group of cloistered nuns — who normally visit others through a partition — on Saturday, 21 March at the Naples Cathedral.
While one of the nuns presented a gift to the Pontiff along with other nuns who surrounded him, a Cardinal claimed, "They are going to eat him!"
Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe even joked: "And these are the cloistered ones. Just imagine the non-cloistered ones," reported DailyMail.
The Pope had a similar experience in 2013 during his visit to the Brazilian town of Aparecida, where almost 40 nuns surrounded him.
The Pope arrived in Naples for a one-day visit to meet priests, religious leaders and seminarians and spoke about mafia, corrupt politicians and urged people to fight against crime.
The Pontiff, who is known for his cool nature, even had lunch with gays, transgenders and HIV patients at a prison in Naples.
Meanwhile, few days ago, a clothing firm's billboard advertisement featuring a partially topless nun had raked up a 'blasphemy' row before the Pope's arrival to the city.
