Addressing the crowds, he explained: “Dear brothers and sisters, good morning. First of all, I have to apologise for being late but I had an unexpected event, I have been stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes.”
The Pope said that there was “a drop in voltage,” and that the elevator stopped.
“Thank goodness, the firemen arrived, and I thank them so much, and after 25 minutes of work they managed to get it started again,” he said.
“A round of applause for the firefighters!” he added.
