March 22, 2013. (Romereports.com) Pope Francis
celebrated Mass on Friday morning for the Vatican gardeners, sweepers and guards
, at the chapel of Domus Sanctae Martae, where Cardinals stayed for the conclave.
The Pope took his cue from John Paul II
, who would often
celebrate Mass at 7AM for invited groups. The day before, he invited the
staff of Casa Santa Marta.
During Mass, the Pope gives a small, improvised homily, commenting on the Gospel of the day.
