CZESTOCHOWA, Poland — 79-year-old Pope Francis tripped and fell as he arrived for Mass at the Black Madonna shrine of Czestochowa in Poland.

Priests rushed to help him up, straighten his robes and give him a second to catch his breath.

He may have missed his step, but he never missed a beat during the rest of the ceremony.
