Pope drops f-bomb during Vatican address

The Argentinian pope made a mistake in Italian apparently common to non-native speakers during his weekly blessing to a crowd gathered in St. Peter's square. 
     An English translation of the gaffe:
     “If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this fuck, in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity.”
     Francis' intent was to utter the Italian word for “example,” — “caso.”
     Instead, he said cazzo, slang for penis, but also widely used as a verbal synonym for fuck.
