Pope Francis to celebrate Holy Thursday at center for disabled and elderly people

2014-04-08

Pope Francis will celebrate Holy Thursday at a facility for disabled and elderly people. The Pope will wash the feet of 12 people with special needs, at the St. Mary of Providence Center of the Don Gnocchi Foundation, located in the outskirts of Rome. 

The Pope has made it a point to lead by example when it comes to helping the marginalized, the poor and the needy. It's a scene that's come to life time and time again, including his first visit to Assisi, where he met with ill children and teenagers. 

Last year, in his first Holy Thursday as Pope, he decided to celebrate Mass at a juvenile jail, washing the feet of prisoners. They included detainees of different nationalities and even religions. He washed the feet of two Muslims, one of them female. 

Back in Argentina, he was known for celebrating Holy Thursday with the marginalized, in hospitals, prisons and slums. It's something he has adapted to his new home in the Eternal City.
