Pope Francis eats lunch with 130 people in need in Genoa


Out of those who awaited the pope's visit to Genoa, these were the one's with the most enthusiasm.

Pope Francis had lunch with 130 needy people. There were homeless, a large number of foreigners and 11 detainees.

The pope greeted everyone, not paying any attention to the discomfort that seemed to be felt in his right arm. The same thing happened during the 2016 Holy Thursday ceremony, when while greeting hundreds of refugees, he also had to grab his arm.

The strong emotion was felt in the environment. Some asked him to sign autographs or gave him presents, but the luckiest ones were the smallest ones, to whom Pope Francis devoted much attention.

After a simple and effective blessing ...

"Enjoy your lunch. May God bless us all."

In the place where they met a party broke out that was contained, but very happy.
