​The Pope's thoughts turn to the poor of Rome

While Pope Francis was presiding at the Via Crucis at the Colosseum, his Almoner brought a sign of Pontiff's love to the poor of Rome. For the second consecutive year, Archbishop Krajewski spent the evening of Good Friday with his colleague Msgr Ravelli in the city's main train stations, homeless shelters and dormitories around St Peter's Square conveying the Pope's concern for them: The two prelates described it as “a little embrace”, distributing to about 300 men and women gift bags with the Pope's Easter card, an image of the Pope and a donation of money. Many, visibly moved, kissed the photograph of Francis, asking them to thank him on their behalf.
