2014-04-17

(-ONLY VIDEO-) On Holy Thursday, Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 patients with special needs at the St. Mary of Providence Center, for the Don Gnocchi Foundation.

It's a center for the elderly and people with several disabilities located in the outskirts of Rome.

Their ages ranged from 16 to 86. Among them were four women and a Muslim.

During his homily, the Pope explained that with that gesture Christians are reminded to always be at the service of others.
