CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis traveled to Civitavecchia, a city 50 miles north of Rome, to celebrate the Holy Thursday evening Mass in the chapel of a new prison. There, he washed the feet of 12 inmates.

“Each one of us,” the Pope preached, “will have something that has been in our hearts for a long time, but we ask Jesus for forgiveness ... There is the Lord who judges, but it is (what may seem) a strange judgment: the Lord judges and forgives.”
