A broken femur is not good at all for an old man.  The Holy Father looked shaken up but fine phsyically. Let's hope that is the truth and that the Cardinal has no complications with a broken leg.

Honestly though, what was this woman's motive?  She obviously wants to hurt the Holy Father since she has done this twice and she pulled him to the ground. And yet, she had her chance. She could have killed him if she had a weapon but instead she just runs out there for a tackle?

The article that I posted in another thread said that she simply wanted to "embrace" the Pope. They said she was just simply a deranged "overzealous admirer." I however, think it's much more than that.

Well, it could be I suppose.  They said that it was more the guards tackling her as she grabbed onto him that pulled him down.
I'm ignorant of Italian law practices but it would seem that after the first attack, she should have been imprisoned or issued a restraining order - mental evaluation at the very least.  What would be the equivalent in the US?  Aggravated assault charges?

In Las Vegas, cheaters pictures are shared with all the casinos and they are barred from entry and/or asked to leave once spotted.  Before the connection was made to this being the same woman, I recognized the coat from last year's video.  The Swiss Guard is great but she learned from her mistake last year and timed her attack better this year. 

I hope in this case that the third time is not the charm.

Sip

The sad truth is that there very few fully traditional people, who believe that the base difference between the Catholics and non Catholics is to accept the leadership of the Pope.  All the rest is secondary, and could be shared by Eastern Orthodox, Protestant or even humanitarian groups.
There are more than one crazy person out there ... now a Facebook 'fan' page for the attacker has been set up!  :realmad:

At first I thought maybe she was some crazy trad trying to get a '62 Missale Romanum to HH before he reached the table. Alas, no such luck.
Thank God he's Okay the Swiss Guard should have chopped her into bits.

You mean the altar?  The altar used at St. Peter's is the same that popes have used before, far as I know.

Yes, it is.  He even says Mass on the same side of the altar as was done before the Council.
