No media coverage for Pope’s Holy Thursday Mass

Catholic World News - March 26, 2013

Pope Francis has indicated that he wants the Holy Thursday Mass that he will celebrate at a juvenile detention center in Rome to be a quiet, simple celebration. The media will not be invited.

The Pope will concelebrate the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the Casal del Marmo center with Cardinal Agostino Vallini, the vicar general of the Rome diocese, and Father Gaetano Greco, the chaplain of the detention center. The congregation will be made up of 50 youthful offenders, 40 boys and 10 girls. After the Mass the Pope will meet with the young residents and the personnel of the center.
