Last night, Italian media reported that Pope Francisco Bergoglio performed the Holy Thursday ritual of the washing of the feet by washing the feet of prisoners at the Roman juvenile prison Casal del Marmo. He performed the rite inside the prison walls, where he washed the feet of 12 prisoners, including two girls. The prison chaplain, Fr Gaetano Greco, said, “In Buenos Aires, when he was a Cardinal, he allowed girls to participate in the ritual. We managed to persuade the Vatican to allow a female presence now that Bergoglio’s the pope”. Besides all that, the pontiff washed the feet of two Muslims. The rite of foot washing takes place in Christian churches on Holy Thursday, in memory of how Jesus washed the feet of His 12 Apostles at the Last Supper.

Pope to Celebrate Mass in Youth Prison on Holy Thursday

______________________________

On Thursday, the Vatican said in a statement that Pope Francisco Bergoglio would celebrate Mass next week, before Catholic Easter, in a youth detention centre in Rome, during which he’d wash the feet of prisoners. The Vatican said the Holy Thursday Mass would continue Bergoglio’s tradition as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, when he served Mass in prisons, hospitals, and nursing homes.

Editor’s Note:

All leftists should note that Pope Francisco is a strong advocate of social justice and economic equity. That means that semi-Republican pukes like Dolan and O’Malley should halt their smarmy and underhanded support of the Republican Anti-Life Programme… but they won’t. Let God see and judge…
