Papal charity to open night shelter for homeless ?
Among the services that homeless people around the Vatican are receiving from the charity of Pope Francis, will be added another one – a place to sleep. After a place for shower, a barber’s service in the Vatican and a hot meal at Rome’s Terminus station, the homeless will soon have a dormitory near the Vatican, said the Pope’s Almoner or official alms-giver, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski. “We are preparing something,” the Polish archbishop told Italian news agency Ansa. The site on Via dei Penitenzieri close to the Vatican, is currently being renovated. The 30-bed facility will be used only as night shelter and will be managed by volunteers. The date for the start of the service has not been fixed as yet. As Archbishop Krajewski has always said, these services are meant to give dignity to the person.
