Pope Francis visits the Vatican's new homeless shelter

2015-10-16

People were playing cards and reading at the Vatican's newly opened homeless shelter. Then an unexpected guest arrived.

"Thank you, Holy Father.”
"Welcome.”

Pope Francis visited the shelter just days after the Vatican opened the building. It started with a tour, as the Pope learned details about the place.

"Your Holiness, before, they were under the colonnade, sleeping under thousands of stars. Now they have a two star shelter.”

Monsignor Krajewski told the Pope that there are 34 beds and every person can stay in the shelter for a month maximum.

"It is a month to breathe, to think a little, to be well.

The Pope kindly greeted those who were staying in the shelter.

"Thank you for accepting this home, our home that you have thanks to the generosity of the Jesuit priests who have donated it.”

The Jesuits' Superior General, Father Adolfo Nicolas, joined Pope Francis during his tour of the center. They showed him the beds and their lockers.

"Thank you.”
"Thank you, Your Holiness.”
"Thank you, and pray for me.”
"Always.”
"May the Lord bless you.”

Before leaving, the Pope said good bye and smiled as he told the residents to sleep well.

"Good night and rest well.”
