This is the second year Pope Francis has held a lunch with the poor and more invitations have been increased this time.

As a way of encouraging more this call for service to the disadvantaged, the Vatican has also placed a tent hospital on St. Peter's Square. It has been open throughout the week to provide medical service to the homeless.
