Pope will visit Roman jail, distribute pocket-sized Gospels

April 15, 2014

Pope Francis will visit the Regina Caeli prison in Rome on April 16—the Wednesday of Holy Week—and distribute pocket-sized copies of the Gospels to inmates there.

The Pope has recommended that believers keep a copy of the Gospels handy at all times. On Sunday, April 6, he ordered the distribution of the same pocket-sized volume—which also contains the Acts of the Apostles—to everyone in attendance at his Angelus audience.
