From Los Angeles Times:
Pope Francis greeted the faithful at St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday and allowed nuns and priests to kiss his papal ring during his weekly audience without a hitch, a likely relief to a Vatican encountering sharp criticism this week.
The Vatican came under fire from some Roman Catholics after images showed Francis repeatedly pulling his hand away from worshipers who leaned down to kiss his papal ring Monday in Loreto, Italy. In addition, the all-female staff of the Vatican’s women’s magazine resigned, alleging editorial interference from their male boss. Some Catholics said the so-called baciamano is a sign of respect paid by the faithful to the church, not only the pope.
