Pope washes feet of 12 Rome Prison inmates

Pope-Francis-12-prisoners-02

Pope Francis got on his knees and washed the feet of twelve inmates in a Rome prison after the homily on Holy Thursday. They included two Muslims and a Buddhist. He told them that the jail sentences must be "open to hope" and condemned death penalty as "not Christian or human".

"I am a sinner but come as Christ's ambassador," the Pope told the prisoners. "When I wash your feet, remember that Jesus never abandons you and he never tires of forgiving you," the 81-year-old Argentinian pontiff said. He made this observation, during his homily at celebration of the Mass of the Lord's Supper on Thursday, the first of the Easter Triduum services.
