    Pope Francis: 'washing of the feet' among inmates of 'Casal del Marmo' youth detention centre



    Francis will visit the facility on the afternoon of Holy Thursday. As archbishop of Buenos Aires, he celebrated In Coena Domini in a prison, a hospital or hospice for poor and marginalised people.

    Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Pope Francis will celebrate the In Coena Domini, the Lord's Supper, at 'Casal del Marmo' youth detention centre in Rome, at 5.30 pm on 28 March.

    In a press release, the Holy See Press Office said, "The Mass of the Lord's Supper, which commemorates the institution of the Eucharist, also features the rite of the washing of the feet. In his ministry as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Bergoglio used to celebrate the Mass in a prison, hospital or hospice for poor and marginalised people."

    With the celebration at 'Casal del Marmo', Pope Francis continues the practice, which must characterised by a context of simplicity.

    Benedict XVI visited the same facility on 18 March 2007, where he celebrated Mass in the 'Padre Misericordioso' (Merciful Father) Chapel.

    The youth detention centre is also connected to Card Agostino Casaroli, a former secretary of state under Paul Vi, John Paul I and John Paul II.

    The father of the Vatican's Ostpolitik (policy of engagement with the East) visited young prisoners each week.

    Other Holy Week celebrations are expected to follow the normal schedule.

    After 24 hours of silence, China’s media today published excerpts, comments and editorials about Pope Francis’ interview with Asia Times. Although the pope did not address religious issues or Church problems, many saw the interview as an attempt to improve diplomatic relations between China and the Vatican, and advised Francis to accept Mao Zedong’s "three principles of independence" (theology, administration, jurisdiction), which would leave the power to appoint bishops in the hands of the Party. The People's Daily’s Global Times publishes an editorial on the issue.
