Pope washes the feet of 12 inmates, half of them women, in Rome's Rebibbia prison

2015-04-02

(-VIDEO ONLY-) Pope Francis celebrated Holy Thursday by commemorating Jesus' Last Supper in Rome's Rebibbia prison. 

The Pope washed the feet of 12 inmates, half of them female, from Italy, Nigeria, Congo, Brazil and Ecuador. The Pope kissed their feet after washing them, including the child of one of the Nigerian inmates. The Pope needed help to bend down on his knees. Many of the people attending the Mass, broke down in tears. 

He highlighted during his homily, that in Jesus' time, washing other people's feet was something reserved for slaves. Jesus, he added, carried out this example because He wanted to be everyone's 'slave.'
