CWN Editor's Note: A group of “transgender women” (men acting as women), some of them working as prostitutes, have become regulars at papal audiences, and joined with Pope Francis when he hosted a meal for the World Day of the Poor.

The group from Torvaianica, Italy, received support and encouragement from the parish priest there, and began attending papal audiences, an AP story reports. “Eventually, Francis asked to meet them.”
