I Think This is Wonderful!

Pope francis

I don’t have a lot to say about this for now — I’ll probably get around to saying quite a lot later — but I think it’s wonderful. 

I love our Pope!

From Vatican Information Service: 

FRANCIS WILL SAY HOLY THURSDAY MASS IN A ROMAN PRISON

Vatican City, 21 March 2013 (VIS) – On Holy Thursday, 28 March, the Holy Father Francis will celebrate the Chrism Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica in the morning and then, at 5:30pm in the afternoon, will go to celebrate the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the Casal del Marmo youth detention centre instead of the Basilica of St. John Lateran, where it had been traditionally held in past years.

The Mass of the Lord’s Supper is characterized by the announcement of the commandment of love and the gesture of washing the feet. In his ministry as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Bergoglio used to celebrate the Mass in a prison or hospital or hospice for the poor and marginalized. With this celebration at Casal del Marmo, Pope Francis will continue his custom, which is characterized by its humble context. (Read the rest here.)

    As a member of our Diocese Detention Ministry, I cannot express just how grateful to Pope Francis that he is doing this. Corporal Work of Mercy….what a power of example he is!! We are so blessed to have him. Thank you, God.
