A video of the woman's handshaking by the pope went viral on the social networking site, after which she apologized in private.
He said that 'many times the patience of our patients disappears.'
The head of the Catholic Church said, "This also happens to me. I apologize for setting a wrong example last day."
Twitter users commented on the Pope's reaction to the woman's movement.
Pope Francis had even handcuffed the children before the incident and was about to return that the woman grabbed his hand and pulled them towards her.

Twitter's response showed support for the process.
One user said 'I am not Catholic, but the woman's move was wrong, it seems that the Pope may have had pain at the time'.
Another user said that 'the woman did the wrong thing, but the pope's reaction was not the same as the pope's
