Pope Stumbles in Front of Cardinals

The new elected Pope Francis held an audience in Rome's St. Peter's Basilica on Friday morning, paying tribute to his predecessor Benedict XVI. As he stepped off the alter to greet the dean of the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, Francis had a slight misstep and stumbled. He immediately recovered. Francis is set to be installed as pope on Tuesday.
