Pope invites Rome's poor to Holy Thursday Mass
March 20, 2013
Pope Francis is making a special effort to include the poor of Rome in the congregation for the Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday.
The Pope has made 3,000 ticket to the Mass available to the charitable group Caritas. Caritas will reportedly coordinate with the St. Egidio community to distribute the tickets.
There is no cost for the tickets, but a ticket is required for admission because of the limits on available space.
