Pope Francis’s Homeless Dinner at the Vatican

Pope Francis continues to amaze. Recently he invited 200 homeless people to have dinner with him at the Vatican. The dinner was organized by Circle of Saint Peter, a papal charity as “a concrete sign of the Pope’s charity.”

Pope Francis is coming through on an address he gave in March in which he decried a society that is more concerned about economic prosperity than homeless people dying of starvation and cold.

You can read more about the event at Catholic News Agency.

I share Pope Francis’ sentiments on the importance of helping the homeless. I wrote a letter to the Irish Independent on the inspiring poetry of a homeless man living on the streets of Dublin, Ireland. During our last Lent, I went around the entire city of Dublin to give money to the homeless.
