“Thank you for this opportunity! I am very happy and I thank everyonewith love and expertise have prepared the food - I really felt thepower of this kitchen, congratulations!” 

Benedict XVI told the poor, that he is close to them and loves them,and called on everyone to always remember those in need and help them.

After the meal, the pope handed out gifts to about 30 children at the center.

The pope’s visit to the soup kitchen is part of a tradition his predecessor John Paul II started in 1998.
