Pope Francis brings 4,000 homeless to Mass and then invites them to lunch
As it could not be otherwise: the poor and most needy were the protagonists of the first World Day of the Poor.
Thousands came and filled St. Peter’s Basilica, with several of them leading the procession that started the ceremony…
It was also the homeless who read the readings of the day.
During his homily, Pope Francis issued a warning.
From St. Peter’s Basilica and before 4,000 needy people, the pope said the sin of omission is on the rise. This is the sin of those who think to “be good” it is enough to simply not to do bad things.
“We often think that we haven’t done anything wrong, and so we rest content, presuming that we are good and just.”
