(ANSA) - Vatican City, March 28 - Pope Francis is not
letting people kiss his ring when there are many people wanting
to do so and therefore a risk of spreading germs, Vatican
Spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said Thursday in explaining an
episode on a recent visit to Loreto that went viral on the Web.
Roman Catholics pay respect to the pope by kneeling before
him and kissing his ring - a so-called fisherman's ring that
recalls St Peter's, the founder of the Church and the first
pope.
