[Here is the Video to prove it]
A Vatican spokesman reported that a woman dressed in red jumped the security barriers in St. Peter’s Basilica (Vatican City) and knocked down Pope Benedict XVI as he walked down the main aisle to begin Christmas Eve Mass.
The commotion occurred as the pope’s procession was making its way toward the main altar and shocked gasps rang out through the public that packed the basilica.
The procession came to a halt and security rushed to the trouble spot.
The Reverent Ciro Benedettini said the Pope quickly got up and was unhurt. Benedict (Ratzinger), 82-year-old, calmly resumed his walk to the basilica’s main altar and began the Mass late Thursday.
Benedettini said the woman who pushed the pope appeared to be mentally unstable and had been arrested by Vatican police. He said she also knocked down Cardinal Roger Etchegaray, who was taken to hospital for a check up.
In the 2008 Christmas Eve Celebration, Benedict was also a victim of a supposed attack from a person dressed in red (like the devil) jumping towards him from the mass, in a very similar situation, as we reported in that time. It seems to be that it is the same person, in that occasion the bodyguards detained her before she could get to the Pope, but this 2009 she did knocked him down.
