Pope Francis to jailed teens: I wash your feet to remind you that we have to help each other

2013-03-28

POPE FRANCIS
"What does this mean? That we have to help one another. If you are angry at someone, let it. And if they ask you for a favor, do it. Jesus teaches us this, and this is what I do, I do it with all my heart, because it's my duty.”

The Pope washed the feet of 12 teens from all religions, including two Muslims. Another surprise was that among the 12 were two girls.

He dried them off with a cloth made with yarn from the Holy Land. It also contained pieces of a fishing net used by fishermen on the Sea of Galilee. 

The ceremony was simple but full of emotion. The inmates gave the Pope a wooden crucifix and a prayer stool, made by them. Pope Francis took them chocolate Easter eggs and colombas, a traditional Italian cake.

Benedict XVI visited the same detention center on March 18, 2007 to celebrate Mass for the inmates at the Merciful Father Chapel.
