Pope is surprise luncheon visitor at Vatican workers' cafeteria

Catholic World News - July 25, 2014

Pope Francis surprised Vatican workers on July 25 by dropping into the staff cafeteria for lunch.

Arriving without warning just after noon, the Pope took a tray, chose a Friday lunch of fish and pasta, and ate at a table alongside Vatican workmen.

The cafeteria director, Franco Pai’ni, told Vatican Radio that the Holy Father’s appearance was “like a thunderbolt out of the blue.” The Pope was introduced to the kitchen staff, posed for a group photo, and gave his blessing before he left.
